"If God Was One of Us" - Joan Osbourne

This song [YouTube] played on the radio in the weight room this morning, and listening to it I realized I'd forgotten how much I love it.
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

And 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

And yeah yeah God is great yeah yeah God is good
yeah yeah yeah yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin' to make his way home
Tryin' to make his way home
Back up to heaven all alone
Nobody calling on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome

And 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
Tryin' to make his way home
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just tryin' to make his way home
Nobody calling on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome
