The Lyrics

This song is non-comedic. What if Meat Loaf got saved and became a street preacher? That's the setting of this song. The female singer near the end of the song is a woman in the crowd who is sincerely considering what Meat Loaf is preaching and approaches him to ask questions. Fuller explanation of lyrics in the postscript.
Lord Jesus died on the cross for us
and went down into hell and back.
Jesus gave everything for love.
He'd never lie to you and that's a fact.
And I'll never forget the day He came into
my heart, to stay.
And He washed sins from my soul with blood, and they won't come back.
No, they can't touch that.

Jesus Christ is love.
Lord Jesus Christ had the greatest love.
Jesus reached down and picked me up, and I won't fall back.
No, I can't fall back.

Christ made salvation easy.
Heretics say it's hard.
But Jesus Christ paid it all and
He gives the life that never ends.

Most will end up in fire.
Most hearts are cold as ice.
Earth is the most "heaven" they've ever
seen before or will again.

You think I'm crazy, but the Bible's proven true.
I told ya He saved me. No one else can save and make you new.

Just read as the pages are turning.
The fires of hell are burning.
The way God saves you're learning now.
You'd better believe it, that Jesus Christ

washed me with His blood
and I'm sealed until the final act.
Jesus Christ bought me with His blood, and He promised not to give me back.
And He'll give you forgiveness if you just call upon His name, tonight.
Jesus will wash you with His blood.
Lord Jesus will wash you with His blood.
Lord Jesus will grab and lift you up, and you won't fall back.
No, you won't fall back.

Lord Jesus bought me with His blood.
I called Him and He picked me up, and my soul won't fall back.
Lord Jesus washed me with His blood.
He took my sins and cleaned me up, and my soul can't fall back.
My works will never measure up,
But Jesus' work will be enough, so my soul can't fall back.

Some people pray for world peace.
And some people pray for gold.
Don't bother just look up to God and
Pray "Lord Jesus, save my soul!"

Stop waiting for a feeling.
Don't wait to take a poll.
Cuz you may soon lose your chance when the
rapture hits and the thunder rolls!

Maybe you'll stone me, but souls are worth the risk to me.
There's just one and only, one and only God that I can preach.

Just read as the page is turning.
The souls down in hell are burning.
Why are you not discerning truth?
You'd better believe it, that Jesus is

risen from the dead
and He left His tomb and that's a fact.
Jesus Christ bought me with His blood, and He's never gonna give me back.
And there's nothing that He gave me that he wouldn't give you. It's free, for all.
Jesus Christ shed His precious blood.
Lord Jesus Christ washed me with His blood.
Jesus reached down and picked me up, and I won't fall back.
No, no, no, I won't fall...

Lord Jesus washed my sins away.
He died for me my debt is paid, and nothing can change that.
Lord Jesus washed me with His blood.
His hand reached down and picked me up, and my soul can't fall back.
Lord Jesus washed me with His blood.
His hand reached down and picked me up, and my soul can't fall back.
Lord Jesus washed me with His blood.
His hand reached down and picked me up, and my soul can't fall back.
Lord Jesus washed me with His blood.
His hand reached down and picked me up, and my soul can't fall back.
Lord Jesus washed me with His blood.
His hand reached down and picked me up, and my soul can't fall back.
Lord Jesus washed me with His blood.
I'll be in heaven up above, and my soul won't fall...

So I'll never stop preaching of His grace for the rest of my life, no way.
Jesus Christ bought me with His blood.
Lord Jesus Christ washed me with His blood.
Jesus reached down and picked me up, and I won't fall back.
No, I won't fall back.

[Female singer:]
Can He cheer me up when I'm feeling down?
Wicked voice in my head, can He take away the sound?
Can He make my heart a little less cold?

[Meatloaf:]
He can do that.
He can do that.

[Female singer:]
Can He kill the darkness? Can He give me light?
Can He take away the gray and just make it black and white?
Can He take my fear and give me hope?

[Meatloaf:]
He can do that.
Oh, oh, yeah, Christ can do that!

[Female singer:]
Can He give me some wings and teach me how to fly?
Can He build a golden city that floats in the sky?
Can He take me there and make it my home?

[Meatloaf:]
Now, He can do that.
Oh, yeah, now He can do that!

[Female singer:]
Can He wipe away every tear that I will cry?
Can He fill me up with living water, that will never run dry?
Can He stay with me so I'm not alone?

[Meatloaf:]
He can do that.
Oh, oh, yeah, Christ can do that!

[Female singer:]
After a while I'll mess up everything.
He'll have my halo removed and He'll tear off my wings.
And He'll let me fall out of His arms.

[Meatloaf:]
He won't do that.
He won't do that.

[Female singer:]
I know I'm wicked and I'm headed for hell.
Only Jesus can save and He does it well!
Save me Lord Jesus cuz I can't save myself.

[Meatloaf:]
The Lord heard that.
Now you won't fall back.

Jesus picked you up.
Lord Jesus just washed you with His blood.
Jesus reached down and picked you up, and you won't fall back.
No, you won't fall back.
"Lord Jesus died on the cross for us" [1 Corinthians 15:1-4 "...I declare unto you the gospel...that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day..."] "and went down into hell and back." [When Jesus died, He went into hell (Acts 2:31) and came back with "the keys of hell and of death" (Revelation 1:18)] "Jesus gave everything for love." [He gave His life. 1 John 3:16a "Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us:"] "He'd never lie to you and that's a fact." ["God...cannot lie" (Titus 1:2), and Jesus is God. (Matthew 1:23, Luke 8:39, John 14:9, 20:28, Hebrews 1:8, Romans 8:9, 9:5, Philippians 2:6, 1 John 3:16, etc.)] "And I'll never forget the day He came into my heart, to stay." [When a person is born again, Jesus (in the form of the Holy Spirit) enters that person's heart. (John 14:20, Colossians 1:27, Ephesians 3:17, Romans 8:9-10, Acts 15:9, 1 Corinthians 14:25)] "And He washed sins from my soul with blood," [In Revelation 1:5, John wrote of those that have been born again: "...Jesus Christ...washed us from our sins in his own blood..." Have you sinned? Galatians 5:19-21 "Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft... Envyings, murders, drunkenness... and such..." Exodus 20:7-16 "Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain... Thou shalt not commit adultery. (Matthew 5:28 "...whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.") Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour..." Proverbs 6:16-17 "These...doth the LORD hate... A proud look, a lying tongue..." Proverbs 21:4 "...a proud heart...is sin." Proverbs 24:9 "The thought of foolishness is sin..." 1 John 5:17a "All unrighteousness is sin..." 1 John 1:8 "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." Romans 3:23a "For all have sinned..." Romans 6:23a "For the wages of sin is death..." Revelation 20:14b "...the lake of fire...is the second death."] "and they won't come back. No, they can't touch that." [When a person is born again, God separates that person's soul from his body so the sins he commits from that day forward can't contaminate his soul (Colossians 2:11 with Hebrews 4:12, Romans 7:5,17-25 with 1 John 3:9).] "Jesus Christ is love." [Because "God is love" (1 John 4:8) and Jesus is God.] "Lord Jesus Christ had the greatest love." [John 15:13] "Jesus reached down and picked me up, and I won't fall back. No, I can't fall back." [That is, he can't "fall back" to where he was (lost/hellbound). In John 10:28, Jesus said "And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand."] "Christ made salvation easy." [Romans 4:5 "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Ephesians 2:8-9 "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast."] "Heretics say it's hard." [Galatians 1:7] "But Jesus Christ paid it all" [Romans 5:11] "and He gives the life that never ends." [John 6:47 "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life."] "Most will end up in fire." [Matthew 7:13-14 "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it."] "Earth is the most 'heaven' they've ever seen before or will again." [When people think of "going to heaven", they're thinking of what the Bible calls "the third heaven" (2 Corinthians 12:2) which is above the universe. The 1st heaven is the earth's atmosphere (Genesis 1:20, Psalms 147:8). The 2nd heaven is what we call "outer space" (Genesis 1:14-16).] "You think I'm crazy," [1 Corinthians 1:18 "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God." When the apostle Paul preached, the lost man Festus called him "mad" (Acts 26:24). That's is typical. 1 Corinthians 2:14 "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."] "but the Bible's proven true." [By secular historical documents, archaeology, mathematical probability of fulfilled prophecies, and supernatural mathematical phenomenon within the Bible itself.] "No one else can save and make you new." [John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." 2 Corinthians 5:17a "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature..."] "Just read as the pages are turning." [The pages of Meat Loaf's Bible as he reads verses to the crowd.] "The fires of hell are burning." ["...hell...the fire that never shall be quenched..." (Mark 9:43)] "Jesus Christ washed me with His blood and I'm sealed until the final act." [When you're saved/born-again, you receive "the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption." (Ephesians 4:30)] "Jesus Christ bought me with His blood," [Acts 20:28b "...the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood." (In the Bible, a "church" is a group of saved people, not a building which they happen to assemble in.)] "and He promised not to give me back." [Hebrews 13:5b "...for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee."] "And He'll give you forgiveness if you just call upon His name, tonight." [Ephesians 1:5-7 "...Jesus Christ... In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace..." Ephesians 2:8a "For by grace are ye saved through faith..." Romans 10:8-9 "...the word of faith... That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." 1 Corinthians 1:2b "...call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord..." Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Will you now trust the Lord Jesus Christ to keep you out of hell? (Ephesians 1:12-13) Then ASK HIM TO SAVE YOU NOW!
