Joan Osborne, “One of us”

So one of these nights and about twelve o’clock / This old world’s going to reel and rock / Saints will tremble and cry for pain / For the Lord’s gonna come in his heavenly airplane

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?

And yeah, yeah, God is great / Yeah, yeah, God is good / And 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 / Tryin’ 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 / And 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 / Tryin’ to make his way home? / Just tryin’ to make his way home / Like back up to heaven all alone / Nobody callin’ on the phone / ’Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome

And yeah, yeah, God is great / Yeah, yeah, God is good / And 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 / Tryin’ 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
