God Song


Joan Osborne

Hi there, y'all, this is a song I heard when they used to run a tv show called "Joan of Arcadia", which was about a girl (Joan) to who God appear to, in different forms, be it a young girl, a grown man, a begger, a punk, a teacher...it was a pretty good show but it was canceled "because of ratings" and apparently, teenagers these days rather see a show about a girl who talks to ghosts, than a girl that talks to God.

Well, I loved the show, and I love the song, here it is, its a beautiful song, and it talks about how God is everywhere and we never see him, we never notice him, we never care about him and check-in to see how our Father is doing...everyone prays and ask the Lord for something to help them earn more money, to get the girl they love, to do well in an exam or ask him to protect their family, God listens, God acts, but he never gets a Thank You back...

The Song is performed by Joan Osborne and the Title is: "What If God Was one of Us"

If God had a name, what would it be
And would you call it to his face
If you were faced with him in all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question

Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

If God had a face, what would it look like
And would you want to see
If seeing meant that you would have to believe
In things like heaven and in jesus and the saints
And all the prophets and...

Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

Tryin to make his way home
Back up to heaven all alone
Nobody callin on the phone
cept for the pope maybe in rome

Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make his way home

Just tryin to make his way home
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just tryin to make his way home
Nobody callin on the phone
cept for the pope maybe in rome
