    Lyrics below

     

    [Verse 1]
    If God had a name, what would it be
    And would we call it to His face
    If we were faced with Him and all His glory?
    What would you ask if you had just one question?

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Yeah, yeah, God is great
    Yeah, yeah, God is good
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

    [Chorus]
    What if God was one of us?
    Just a slave like one of us?
    Just a stranger on the bus
    Trying to make His way home

    [Verse 2]
    If God had a face, what would it look like
    And would you want to see it
    If seeing meant that you would have to believe in things like heaven
    And Jesus and the saints and all the prophets?

    [Pre-Chorus]

    [Chorus]

    [Pre-Chorus]

    [Chorus]

    [Bridge]
    Like a holy rolling stone
    Back up to heaven all alone
    Nobody calling on the phone
    Except for the Pope maybe in Rome
    But He ain’t home, He ain’t home, He ain’t home!
    No, no, no, He ain’t home![x2]
    Oh yeah, oh!

    [Outro]
    (What if God was one us?)[x4]
