Lyrics
Jesus
(Love)
(Higher up)
(Higher up)

Let me tell you about a man I know
Had power two change bread two gold
Never did he pray for what he didn't need
The word of God he always heeded two
A man called Jesus
A man called Jesus

Born in Bethlehem Christmas Day
A man whose life changed the way
Everywhere with the holy word he went
Some folks said it was absurd
He walked on water like dry land
Floatin' on faith
I'm talkin' about the man called (Jesus) Jesus (Love)
Jesus (Higher up) Jesus

Non-believers soon grew two hate (Jesus)
'Cause when he rapped he put love in the place
My God is love (Higher up)
Jesus (Love) (Higher up)
Mary's baby Jesus

For every man, woman, boy and girl
This man died for the sins of the world, of the world
You can have happiness everyday
This man's life is proof and his word is the way
His word is the way
And that word is love (Love)
Alright (Higher up)

Yeah, yeah
(Jesus) Jesus
(Jesus, Jesus) Jesus (Higher up)
(Love) (Higher up)

My Jesus, Jesus (Ooh yeah)
Oh Lord, woke me up this mornin' (Jesus)
Started me on my way (Started me on my way)
I'm talkin' about Jesus (Higher, higher, higher up)

Let me tell you about a man I know
Had power two change bread two gold
Never did he pray for what he didn't need
God's word he always heeded
(Jesus) Jesus (Jesus) Jesus
(Jesus) Jesus (Jesus)

(Jesus, Jesus) Oh, how I love two call your name
(Higher, higher, higher up)
Jesus, Jesus

(Love two call, come on and love His name)
A friend above all others
You make a way out of no way
Turn the midnight into day
Mary's baby born in Bethlehem (Jesus)
My main man Jesus (Higher up)
Lily of the valley (Jesus)
Bright and morning star
He's the Prince of Peace (Higher up)
Listen y'all
I'm talkin bout the man, I'm talkin bout the man
A man called Jesus
You oughta get two know him
You oughta try him
Jesus (Jesus) Jesus (Jesus) (Higher up)
Jesus (Jesus) Jesus (Jesus)
Jesus (Jesus) Jesus (Jesus)
