Every Man Like Jesus

What if every man was Jesus
What difference would it make?
Would I help the lonely drifters?
Male, female, gay and straight

Would you give your life to tell him?
Or risk her spitting in your face
What if every man was Jesus
Who on earth would you hate?

That beastly beggar is Jesus
Yes her hand you dare not hold
Give quickly, quit thinking
Clothe her leprous digits from the cold

What if El Comandante was Jesus
Would you curse him to his face?
The brute, the thief, the monster
Would dare you contemplate?

What if every man was Jesus
The ones you’re wont to cheat
Faithful wives and husbands—Remember
The goats at Judgement’s seat

Every man is Jesus
The least of them indeed
The ones that know and know not
For us all did He bleed

Treat everyone like Jesus
The right, the wrong, the in-between
A law He came to give
Died He the cross this live
