The Lyrics

Jesus was in glory
When He chose the worst type of death
'At the Cross', He gave His life
Where He kinda sort of lost His breath

Had Himself a trial
Got railroaded bad
Caught between a rock and a hard place
With no help from dear ole Dad
Don't you know

Jesus asked His Poppa
Oh Father take this cup away
I gotta case of cold feet
Gotta see me through this okay

Jesus prayed through the night
Sweatin blood drops somethin fierce
Judas said, 'Hail there Rabbi!'
Smiled and kissed Him queer
Don't you know...

Don't you know that you are a child of God
(Don't you know, don't you know)
Don't you know that you are a child of God
And oh! how He still loves you
Even if... even if you're odd

Jesus saved the checkered
In a chess match that was hell [hail]
Instantly everyone was sprung from the devil's jail

Chompin' on a pickle I'm...
Reminded of how He passed
Vinegar killed Jesus
He said, 'It is finished!'' Then breathed His last


A Child of God


Jesus loves you there
Like... His own kid
Judas was foolish - please remember
What he did

Jesus loves you too
Like a warm country day
If you talk with him my friend
You're bound to hear Him say
Don't you know...
