i’m no Jesus, i’m no Son of Man
i’m no Heaven, i’m no Sacrificial Lamb
i wish
i could take away all of your pains
i could wipe away all your mistakes
but no
i’m no Jesus
i can’t save your soul 

you tell me you are afraid of Hell
but your sins only hurt yourself
you tell me you wanna be good
but you don’t do what you know you should
you tell me that ‘baby, i love you’
but you hide from the Truth that
you really need Jesus
to save your soul

i know you crave purpose and you want to change
i know you are lost, please let Him give you grace
oh my love, rejoice for He is King
oh my love, please open your heart and let Him in

i’m no Jesus, i’m no Son of Man
i don’t know Heaven, i’m not the Sacrificial Lamb
and i wish i could be Anointed to be the one to save you
but i need Jesus too
