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
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
What would you ask, if you had one question?
This song, pondering a God with all the troubles of his creations, is kind of a throw-back to the Greeks' view of their Gods and their human foibles. Opinions vary if it was elevatory, celebratory or derogatory.
