the only jesus lyrics – collin raye

he stumbled in the quik stop, scared us all to death
when he cursed at me for staring, i smelt the liquor on his breath
as i felt my anger rising, you know the thought occurred to me
i might be the only jesus he will ever see

so i turned to him and smiled, yes, he thought that i was strange
when i said i’ll pray for you and offered him some change
i couldn’t help but wonder, as he stared back at me
i might be the only jesus he will ever see

and who am i to judge him, don’t know what he’s been through
if i read the bible right, it’s only something god can do
if i can help him out of darkness, let him see the light in me
i might be the only jesus he will ever see

i went back outside to the car with my wife and kids
i felt like we were followed, turned around and it was him
and though he didn’t say a word, oh, it really got to me
when he looked at me and smiled

and who am i to judge him, don’t know what he’s been through
if i read the bible right, it’s only something god can do
if i can help him out of darkness, let him see the light in me
i might be the only jesus he will ever see, yeah
i might be the only jesus he will ever see
