My Sunday Song

The Outlaw 

Some say he was an outlaw, that he roamed across the land,

With a band of unschooled ruffians and few old fishermen,

No one knew just where he came from, or exactly what he’d done,

But they said it must be something bad that kept him on the run.

Some say he was a poet, that he’d stand upon the hill

That his voice could calm an angry crowd and make the waves stand still

That he spoke in many parables that few could understand

But the people sat for hours just to listen to this man.

Some say a politician who spoke of being free,

He was followed by the masses on the shores of Galilee,

He spoke out against corruption and he bowed to no decree,

And they feared his strength and power so they nailed him to a tree.

Some say he was a sorcerer, a man of mystery,

He could walk upon the water, he could make a blind man see,

That he conjured wine at weddings and did tricks with fish and bread,

That he talked of being born again and raised people from the dead.

Some say he was the Son of God, a man above all men,

That he came to be a servant and to set us free from sin,

And that’s who I believe he is cause that’s what I believe,

And I think we should get ready cause it’s time for us to leave.

New segment starting today! I’m looking to highlight a song each Sunday. You can give me input for the upcoming Sunday. Who knows your suggestion might be the next one.

About Ben Kilen

I am a average guy father of 4. I don't claim any super powers or amazing talents. I do have a double jointed thumb and I have always hoped it would bring me wealth and fame but so far it hasn't. I am an eclectic music lover as long and by music current day main stream rap does not qualify as music. Anything that has one to two sentences hammered over and over with no melody or excessive auto tune does not qualify.

    Love this! – “And that’s who I believe he is cause that’s what I believe” Can’t say it any clearer than that! 🙂

    That brought back many memories! I haven’t heard any Larry Norman for years!
