VERSE:
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

REFRAIN:
Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

CHORUS:
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

VERSE:
If God had a face, what would it look like
And would you want 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...

REFRAIN:
Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

CHORUS:
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

CODA:
Tryin' to make His way home
Back up to Heaven all alone
Nobody callin' on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome

REFRAIN:
Yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

CHORUS:
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

CODA:
Just tryin' to make his way home
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to Heaven all alone
Just tryin' to make his way home
Nobody callin' on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome
