Noah was a drunkard, Moses was a murderer
Mary was an average girl and no one'd ever heard of her
Jacob stole Esau's inheritance on a whim
And yet God named His chosen people after him
Rahab was a prostitute, and a gentile besides
But is found in Jesus' lineage - Matthew one verse five
David was a murderer and slept with Uriah's wife
Yet was known as a man after God's heart most of his life
The Bible's full of imperfect people, not PG rated
Some would be behind bars, incarcerated
Even outside the Bible more examples can be found
Stories of God using crooked sticks always abound
John Newton owned a slave ship, Thi'sl was a drug seller
Josh McDowell was God's biggest skeptic, perhaps ever
So if God can use Solomon, who had seven hundred wives
Then I'm pretty sure he can still use my messed-up life

Crooked sticks and we best fall in line
'Cause my God uses messed up people all the time
It seems the only requirement is to be messed up a bunch
God can still use me even if I mess up once
Or you know, a hundred times, but it'll be alright
'Cause even someone like me can do all things through Christ
Or you know, a hundred times, but it'll be alright
'Cause even someone like me can do all things through Christ

Yeah, young kid beat the odds
They said I couldn't win and they said I'm a lost cause
But my God gets the most amount of glory from the weak
He said He use the least, and man that sounds like me
But He gon' lift me up, show me how to love, fillin' up my cup
I ain't worried 'bout my situation, my hope's up above
My inheritance is heavenly, sincerely 
Young Jud bringin' in the melodies
You can call me what you want
But it don't phase me, no
You call me what you want
But I know who I am in the G-O-D
That's God. My ID's embedded in the cross
My job is to reach to the lost, yeah
My ID's embedded in the cross
My job is to reach the lost, yeah

Crooked sticks and we best fall in line
'Cause my God uses messed up people all the time
It seems the only requirement is to be messed up a bunch
God can still use me even if I mess up once
Or you know, a hundred times, but it'll be alright
'Cause even someone like me can do all things through Christ
Or you know, a hundred times, but it'll be alright
'Cause even someone like me can do all things through Christ

Even if I mess up hundreds of times it would still be ok
Because the weaker I am, the more glory He gains
God chose foolish things to shame the wise
The lowly things, the failures, and the most despised
Because when we're small, God's power is more evident
When we couldn't do it ourselves, the success is clearly heaven-sent
Think of Gideon - God shrank his army intentionally
So that God was the only one who could claim the victory
So we mustn't get caught up in our past mistakes or failures
Our shortcomings, uncertainties, folly, and bad behavior 
Shall we continue sinning so that grace may abound? well
By no means, but if we stumble all is well still
We're incapable of ruining God's almighty plan
If we could then we'd have more power than we really can
So let's continue working, free from fear of screwing up
We serve a mighty God, join with me and lift Him up

Crooked sticks and we best fall in line
'Cause our God uses messed up people all the time
It seems the only requirement is to be messed up a bunch
God can still use us even if we mess up once
Or you know, a hundred times, but it'll be alright
'Cause even people like us can do all things through Christ
Or you know, a hundred times, but it'll be alright
'Cause even people like us can do all things through Christ
