American Jesus - text

I heard the other day
that I needed to pay
for health and wealth and prosperity
live my life served peaches and cream

But then I took a look
and opened a old book
just saw a sandaled man who was a king
yet served the world with such humility

Why do we need a new thing?

It's the American Jesus
we only want Him to please US
just wear a suit and tie
have a wink in His eye
just a really neat guy

But when the truth of His story
is that He left ALL His glory
to work on wood with His hands
travel roads made of sand
be a servant to man

But don't you understand?
It's all about YOU man
what YOU think and wear and drive
and how much money that it takes to feel alive

Instead I see a plan
the Word becoming man
not what I can do for Him for I am weak
but He lives strong and faithfully

Why do we need a new thing?

It's the American Jesus
we only want Him to please US
just wear a suit and tie
have a wink in His eye
just a really neat guy

But when the truth of His story
is that He left ALL His glory
to work on wood with His hands
travel roads made of sand
be a servant to MAN

And what you're thinking He is like
is not the same as who He is
for He is nothing like the world
would entertain in all it's fame and fortune
flashy ways, human praise selfishness in brain it's all insane

it's ALL in vain

It's the American Jesus
we only want Him to please US
just whisper all the right things
and talk a "get rich quick" scheme
"The American Dream"

But when the truth of His story
is that He left ALL His glory
to work on wood with His hands
travel roads made of sand
be a servant to MAN

A simple life sovereign man
we need to get with the plan
He was a servant to MAN
