We just play this song

If God had a name
What would it B?
& would we call it 2 His face
If we were faced with Him
& all His glory?
What would U ask
If U had just 1 question?

Yeah, yeah
God is great
Yeah, yeah
God is good
Yeah...
What if God was 1 of us?
Just a slave like 1 of us?
Just a stranger on a bus
Tryin' 2 make His way home?

If God had a face
What would it look like?
& would U wanna C it
If seeing meant
That U would have 2 believe
N things like heaven & Jesus
& the saints & all the prophets?

Yeah, yeah
God is great
Yeah, yeah
God is good
Yeah...
What if God was 1 of us?
Just a slave like 1 of us?
Just a stranger on a bus
Tryin' 2 make His way home?

Hey
Ahh
Ooh
Ahh

Yeah, yeah
God is great
Yeah, yeah
God is good
Yeah...
What if God was 1 of us?
Just a slob like 1 of us?
(Just a slave like 1 of us?)
Just a stranger on a bus
Tryin' 2 make His way home?
Like a holy rollin' stone
Back up 2 heaven all alone
Nobody callin' on the phone
Except 4 the Pope maybe N Rome
But He ain't home...!
No no no, He ain't home! {repeat}
Oh yeah, oh
What if God was 1 of us? {repeat}
