10. The Real Jesus

Wide-Eyed and Mystified
by downhere



 

Jesus on the radio, Jesus on a late-night show
Jesus in a dream, looking all serene
Jesus on a steeple, Jesus in the Gallup poll
Jesus has His very own brand of rock and roll

Watched him on the silver screen
Bought the action figurine
But Jesus is the only name that makes you flinch

Oh, can anybody show me the real Jesus?
Oh, let Your love unveil the mystery of the real Jesus

Jesus started something new
Jesus coined a phrase or two
Jesus split the line at the turning point of time
Jesus sparked a controversy
Jesus, known for His mercy, gave a man his sight
Jesus isn't white

Jesus loves the children, holds the lambs
Jesus prays a lot
Jesus has distinguishing marks on His hands

If anybody walks behind the Good Shepherd
If anybody holds the hands that heal lepers
And if you recognize the eyes that see forever, please...

Jesus, Jesus
Oh, can anybody show me Jesus
Oh, let Your love unveil the glory, the real Jesus

Oh, can anybody show me the real Jesus?
Oh, let Your love unveil the glory of the real Jesus, the real Jesus



Behind the Song:
"The name of Jesus evokes such a diversity of reactions in so many different people. That fact alone is almost enough to cause me to believe in Him. I think almost anyone you meet will have some kind of reaction to the name "Jesus," negative or positive, whether they intend to or not. I originally set out to write a song that simply depicted a lot of different views of Jesus, whether they were consistent with who Scripture says He is or not. But what I ended up with after about six rewrites was a song that has a lot more focus than that. The quasi-song titled "Jesus" became "The Real Jesus," and naturally went from a song with little to no focus to a very poignant one that I think most believers will realize is a call out to them—to us, the church." - Marc Martel (downhere)
