One Of Us

One Of Us - Joan Osborne

Lyrics

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?

Yeah… yeah… God is great
Yeah… yeah… God is good
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 trying 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

Yeah… yeah… God is great
Yeah… yeah… God is good
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 trying to make his way home
Trying to make his way home…
Back up to heaven all a-lone…
Nobody calling on the phone…
Except for the Pope, maybe in Rome.

Yeah… yeah… God is great
Yeah… yeah… God is good
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 trying to make his way home
Just trying to make his way home…
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to heaven all a-lone…
Just trying to make his way home…

Nobody calling on the phone…

Except for the Pope, maybe in Rome.
