Keith Green – How Can They Live Without Jesus? lyrics

How can they live without Jesus
How can live without God's love
How can they feel so at home down here
When there's so much more up above

Throwin' away things that matter
They hold on to things that don't
The world has gone crazy
But soon maybe
A lot more are gonna know

For maybe they don't understand it
Or maybe they just haven't heard
Or maybe we're not doin' all we can
Living up to His Holy Word

'Cause phonies have come
And wrongs been done
Even killing in Jesus' name
And if you've been burned
Here's what I've learned
The Lord's not the one to blame

For He's not just a religion
With steeples and bells
Or a salesman who will sell you
The things you just want to hear

For His love was such
That he suffered so much
To cause some of us
Just to follow, follow

So many laughing at Jesus
While the funniest thing that He's done
Is love this whole stubborn rebellious world
While their hate for Him just goes on

And love just like that
Will bring him back
For the few He can call His friends
The ones He's found true
Who've made it through
Enduring until the end
The ones He's found true
Who've made it through
Enduring until the end

How Can They Live Without Jesus? meanings

  • u
    Keith had a gift for cutting right through all the religious ideas and hypocritical theology and getting right down to truth. Jesus is not what religion has made him out to be. He is however exactly who the bible says he is. This song tells how religion has miserably failed to demonstrate the power of the living christ. For when he is known. Nothing else compares. Which poses the question. How can anyone live without jesus.
