about

I'm not a religious man, though I have no problem with faith of any kind. This song is about those Christians who are anything but, and wouldn't know Jesus if he blessed them in the street.

lyrics

If I was a lowly orphan boy
And you were a lady fair
And I lay starving in the street
While you had bread to spare
Would you share that bread and care for me
Or leave me lying there
If I was a lowly orphan boy
And you were a lady fair?

If I was a lonely homeless man
Out begging in the street
And you the member of that flock
Who loudly, proudly bleet
Would you cast a penny, or a stone
Or stare down at your feet
If I was a lonely homeless man
Out begging in the street?

If I was a lowly stranger
On the road to Galillee
And you saw not the future
Nor you cared for history
Would you cross the road like all the rest
or turn and follow me
If I was a lowly stranger
On the road to Galillee?
