THE JESUS I KNOW

Tom Heinig/Halley DeVestern (BMI)


The Jesus I know has a sense of humor

The Jesus I know likes a little wine

The Jesus I know don't care about glamour

The Jesus I know, we get along just fine


The Jesus I know don't go much for fightin'

The Jesus I know uses a hammer and saw

The Jesus I know don't mind thunder and lightnin'

The Jesus I know lets the kids play on his lawn


Ain't he the guy who cared about healing

Ain't he the guy who helped the blind man see

Ain't he the guy who fed the hungry

Ain't he the guy who walked across the sea


The Jesus I know, he has a dark complexion

The Jesus I know he don't watch too much tv

The Jesus I know don't care who you love as long as you love somebody

The Jesus I know, he says 'be and let be'


Ain't he the guy who cared about healing

Ain't he the guy who helped the blind man see

Ain't he the guy who fed the hungry

Ain't he the guy who walked across the sea


(Bridge):

Well, I only know what I read about him

And all the things that they say he said

Seems to be lessons about how to lead a good life

But they gave us their own story instead

They poured his blood into their own cup of lies

They know ain't nobody wants to die

If He saw what's being done in his name

He'd cry 'shame, shame, shame!'


The Jesus I know don't go to gun shows

The Jesus I know, he don't give dirty looks

The Jesus I know, he digs Mohammed

The Jesus I know read all of Buddha's books


Ain't he the guy who said, 'c'mon, turn the other cheek'

Ain't he the guy who gave the whole world to the meek

Ain't he the guy who tried to make the world a fair place

Ain't he the guy who got lynched for telling the truth...
