If God had a name what would it be?
And would you call it to His face?
If you were faced with Him, in all His glory
What would you ask if you had just one question?

And yeah, yeah, God He is great
Yeah, yeah, God He is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home

If God had a face what would it look like?
And would you wanna to see if seeing meant that
You would have to believe in things like heaven and in Jesus
And the saints and all the prophets

And yeah, yeah, God He is great
Yeah, yeah, God He is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home

Trying to make His way home
Back up to heaven all alone
Nobody calling on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome

And yeah, yeah, God He is great
Yeah, yeah, God He is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Trying to make His way home

Just trying to make His way home
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just trying to make His way home

Nobody calling on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome
