If Jesus Was Here

Written by: Joe Flach

If Jesus was here on the earth today
Would I make him my friend or would I look away
Would I walk with him down a righteous path
Or would I sit and point, making jokes and laugh

If Jesus told me to stop hoarding my wealth
Giving more of my money away only heals myself
Would I point out that I think it is so unfair
That what I work for so hard goes into welfare

If Jesus took my guns away and reminded me
That I am supposed to love my enemy
Would I cry that it’s my second amendment right
And this tyrannical government I must prepare to fight

If Jesus told me, my neighbors I should love
Even the two gay guys living in the flat above
Would I tell him it’s unnatural and it makes me sick
Would I tell him I quote the Bible to make hate stick

If Jesus was here on the earth today
Would I make him my friend or would I look away
Would I change my ways and stand by his side
Or would I cheer with the crowd when he is crucified
