What Would Jesus Say?

WHAT WOULD JESUS SAY? - Written by Carroll Bryant 



The passing of time slips through our hands
We pay it no mind until we near the end

Looking back in fear at all of our days
Being judged by who we are and every thought we did not cage

And when the mind is shaking
The body is breaking
Nothing much remains

And the breath we’re taking
Hesitates
Until we fall down to our knees and pray

What would Jesus say?
If in the guilty grip you hold the gun
Would he walk away?
If in your eyes you lost the love
For someone

There never seems to be a reason  for emergency
When everything’s okay
But when you break a heart and walk away
What would Jesus say?

Liquidated hate runs through our blood
We take for granted things to the point we’ve had enough

Looking far ahead at the life I cannot see
Be aware of what I take when giving back is what we need

And when the mind is shaking
The body is breaking
Nothing much remains

And the breath we’re taking
Hesitates
Until we fall down to our knees and pray

What would Jesus say?
If in the guilty grip you hold the gun
Would he walk away?
If in your eyes you lost the love
For someone

There never seems to be a reason  for emergency
When everything’s okay
But when you break a heart and walk away
What would Jesus say?

I’m not talking about the side of Christianity
I’m just speaking man to man
On a face to face reality
Looking eye to eye with the Divine entity
I’m just thinking maybe, maybe
He would have something to say to you and me

What flows through your veins?

Carry what you have inside your heart
Because in the end you judge yourself
And the wars you won, you lost, you fought

Becomes your fate

The passing of time slips through our hands
We pay it no mind until we near the end

Looking back in fear at all of our days
Being judged by who we are and every thought we filled with rage

And when the mind is shaking
The body is breaking
Nothing much remains

And the breath we’re taking
Hesitates
Until we fall down to our knees and pray

What would Jesus say?
If in the guilty grip you hold the gun
Would he walk away?
If in your eyes you lost the love
For someone

There never seems to be a reason  for emergency
When everything’s okay
But when you break a heart and walk away
What would Jesus say?

And if you can’t forgive inside his name
Then tell me … what would Jesus say?
