Just a little like Jesus

He was just a little like Jesus
His looks of a bygone time
Says it all: Jesus, Jesus, Jesus

Only he wasn’t Jesus, he was
Just a guy that looked like Jesus
Lived for Jesus,
Lived by the grace of God
Compassion filled his complexion
A kind word was never far from his lips
Always willing, always able to help

His cross to bear was not an easy cross
Yet his past did not define who he was
He simply accepted it at leisure’s pace
And plodded along the rugged road..

Thousands of miles
Away from home to share the gospel,
The message: Restoration at the foot of the cross
Encouraging messages enveloped thousands of people
Hope given..

Like a light he was in a dark world
Just like Jesus
He taught me to trust, and to believe
And to have hope amongst the ashes
Of a broken past

Many a time goosebumps rose
When guitar and fingers gently strummed a tune
A melody so sweet to the soul
Calling us to walk closer to God
It was as if Jesus was here

The peace, the amazing, wonderful peace
That would fill your being
As he strummed away gently
A melody for Jesus
Proclaiming Him Lord of all the nations

Oh the peace, oh the joy that filled
Him was like a spring rose
Bursting to life
A hope a new song to sing
Telling the world
To run to Jesus
To focus on the cross

He was just a little like Jesus
His looks of a bygone time
Says it all: Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
He lives for Jesus
