I may beg
Beg for money
I may lie an lay my body down
Sell what I would give with love
One day before Easter comes
But I won´t let Jesus find me

I walk I eat I sleep
In these streets I may be found
Alive or dead or just reborn
One day before Easter comes
But I won´t let Jesus find me

Jesus knows what I´ve done
I won´t let him lift me up
Before I can turn
To look for him
Before I can turn
To look for him
If Jesus comes around again

I´ll cry I´ll cry
I´ll cry for help
I´ll let you be the one
To try to redeem the sins of man
One day before Easter comes
But I won´t let Jesus find me

I´m gonna hide
Hide from him
Hide myself but most the sin
I´m gonna hide
Hide from him
Hide myself but not the sin
If Jesus comes around again
I´ve got the roch the needle
The bottle of sorrow
And Jesus Jesus Jesus knows
