LYRICS:

WILL THE REAL JESUS PLEASE STAND UP

Don Hill – Willie Young

© Green Isle Music, BMI

Some folks say he’s comin’ others say he came
Some say he’s a different color some use a different name
No matter what they’re sayin’ well it all comes out the same

Who’s leadin’ the children who’s takin’ them home
Who’s leadin’ the sheep to the Promise Land are they left to roam
Will the real Jesus please stand up I need him
Will the real Jesus please stand up I need him

There’s a long hair in New York City claimin’ to be the Son
There’s a street revival in the Midwest cryin’ let our will be done
All I can do is shake my head answer me anyone

Who’s leadin’ the children who’s takin’ them home…

I need him in the darkness to be my guiding light
I’m just a woman yes I am I need his love to stand

Cause I do believe oh I truly do believe
I believe believe oh I truly do believe
Will the real Jesus please stand up I need him
Will the real Jesus please stand up I need him
Oh I need you Jesus yeah

WHERE IS THE REAL JESUS?  IN THE NEXT SONG ON JEANNIE’S ALBUM:

LIGHT YOUR LIGHT

Myra Smith – Margaret Lewis

© Ragged Island Music, BMI

When you see a poor man with an overload
Take a little weight and help him down the road
Just enough to help him without takin’ all his pride
And light your light oh let it shine oh let it shine

Give unto others and they’ll give unto you
That’s the Law of Jesus so you know that it’s true
For each hungry soul you feed and ev’ry word you say that’s kind
You ‘ll feel the light within you shine so come on let it shine

All of your life let it shine people let it shine
Ev’rybody light your light and shed it on the mountain
So ev’ryone can see the way to come
Oh what a light when we all come together
Peace on earth shinin’ bright in everyone
Shinin’ bright shinin’ bright
Peace on earth will shine in everyone

So when you see a debtor tryin’ hard to pay his debts
Give him opportunity help him get ahead
So much goodness will come back for just a little of your time
And it will light your light and it will shine people it will shine

Yeah come on light your light let it shine everbody let it shine
Come on light your light let it shine everbody let it shine

Cheers,

Dimitri
