From the recording The Jesus I Know

Lyrics

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...
