The Prophet

Oh, some say that he was just
A wise and gentle teacher
Just a man called Jesus
A prophet and a preacher

Was he just a man who loved
His god and fellow man
Who somehow healed by touch
With his strong and gentle hands?

Bridge:
But how could just an ordinary man
Change millions of people over all the earth?
Listen to him, you will understand
This prophet spoke extraordinary words
About heaven, eternal life, new birth

Chorus:
He said: I am the way, the truth and the life
No one comes to the Father but through me
I have come to give men eternal life
And I have come to set the captives free

No other teacher ever said
That he was God’s only son
Walked on water, raised the dead
Jesus was the only one

Who else healed the sick and lame
And caused the blind to see
Then walked alive out of his grave
Only the man from Galilee

Bridge:
But how could just an ordinary man
Change millions of people over all the earth?
Listen to him, you will understand
This prophet spoke extraordinary words
About heaven, eternal life, new birth

Chorus:
He said: I am the way, the truth and the life
No one comes to the Father but through me
I have come to give men eternal life
And I have come to set the captives free

Repeat Chorus:

prophet
