Oh, Jesus!

Oh, Jesus! Look what’s being done in your name – Oy Gevalt!
Seems like here we go again, but it’s not your fault, you see.
Oh, Jesus, come and rescue me!

Oh, Jesus! We don’t know who wrote the Bible – what the hey!
It gives us a good story and a reason to pray, you see.
And we can kill for piety.

Oh, Jesus! When you turned the tables over – what a day!
I’d like to go to Washington and do it that way, like you.
This corporate government won’t do.

Oh, Jesus, Jesus,
Where did we lose the love?
Too much ego,
Yeah, amigo,
It’s chokin’ that poor dove.

Oh, Jesus! You tried to teach us that the altar is within.
We got it all mixed up, and now it’s all about sin,
With an unhealthy dose of spin.

Oh, Jesus, Jesus,
Where did we lose the love?
Seems compassion’s out of fashion,
But the light’s still shining from above.

Oh, Jesus! You tried to teach us that forgiveness is the way.
Help us wake up to love, so we can honestly say
We love all humankind today.
