Blind Willies - Lord Thought He'd Make A Man
The Lord thought he’d make a man He wasn’t thinking about me And when he saw what he had done Said “You shall abide or live in misery. Either way you will be tried By a jury of your fears Who will sentence you to labor Under a vale of tears.” There’s no shortage of pretenders But there’s no one like the Lord When I rose up from the dust I was cast into the sea There a beast in the dark water Came and swallowed me Like Job I am bewildered Like Jonah I’m deceived Is not a witness up in heaven Who will testify for me? Man ain’t nothing but a dream He withers like the grass You may sever both his heels But his pride will never pass He was made to be elastic To bend any which way The universe is blowing On this or any day The planets have no power A string of pearls up in the sky If we’re to make it through the night There’ll have to be a sacrifice Say hello to little Jesus Won’t you kiss him once for me? Before he’s dropped into the fire To dance his destiny The Lord ain’t nothing but a man Wanting to be kissed Afraid there’s something out there That’s bigger than his wish Many fears are born of loneliness And from this he can’t escape Like the silence in a bedroom That keeps a poor boy awake There’s no shortage of pretenders But there’s no one like the Lord
