One of Us (Joan Osborne)

Best of Joan Osborne – The Millennium Collection star rating

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, 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.

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 trying to make His way home.

Just 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…..
