ben_harperPicture of Jesus, by Ben Harper. Powerful, understated music, allowing the lyrics to say it all.

 

"Picture Of Jesus"

It hangs above my altar

Like they hung him from a cross

I keep one in my wallet

For the times I feel lost I feel lost In a wooden frame with splinters

Where my family kneels to pray

And if you listen close

You'll hear the words he used to say

I've got a picture of Jesus In his arms so many prayers rest

We've got a picture of Jesus

And with him we shall be forever blessed

Forever blessed Forever blessed

Now it has been spoken

He would come again But would we recognize

This king among men

There was a man in our time

His words shine bright like the sun

He tried to lift the masses And was crucified by gun

He was a picture of Jesus With him so many prayers rest

He is a picture of Jesus In his arms so many prayers

So many prayers So many prayers rest

With him we shall be forever blessed

Forever blessed Forever blessed

Some days have no beginning

And some days have no end

Some roads are straight and narrow

And some roads only bend So let us say a prayer For every living thing

Walking towards a light From the cross of a king

We long to be a picture of Jesus

Of Jesus In his arms In his arms so many prayers rest

I long to be a picture of Jesus

With him we shall be forever blessed

With him we shall With him we shall be forever blessed

Oh- Oh- I long I've got a picture of Jesus Mmhh
