Your own, personal, Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers,
Someone who cares

Your own, personal, Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers,
Someone who's there

Feeling unknown
And you're all alone,
Flesh and bone,
By the telephone,
Lift up the receiver,
I'll make you a believer

Take second best,
Put me to the test,
Things on your chest,
You need to confess,
I will deliver,
You know I'm a forgiver

Reach out and touch faith
Reach out and touch faith

Your own, personal, Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers,
Someone who cares

Your own, personal, Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers,
Someone to care

Feeling unknown
And you're all alone,
Flesh and bone,
By the telephone,
Lift up the receiver,
I'll make you a believer
I will deliver,
You know I'm a forgiver

Reach out and touch faith
Reach out and touch faith
Reach out and touch faith

Reach out and touch faith
