That's Where Jesus Is

from the album "The Lost Cabin and the Mystery Trees"

(2006 Terry Taylor)

Heís not sittiní up in the White House
Not subject to your big debate
Keeps His hands completely off Wall Street
Donít own stocks, bonds or Real Estate
He ainít up droppiní bombs on people
Or workiní on a college degree
He tunes out all them radio blowhards
Canít stand the networks and religious TV

Chorus:
Thatís Jesus in the homeless faces
With the junkies in their liviní hell
Thatís Jesus with the drunks and in
The lonely places
The rest homes and prison cells
Thatís where Jesus is
Thatís where Jesus is

He donít hug trees or kill Ďem
Or drive a particular car
Wonít help you write a big hit song
Donít care how good lookiní you are
And Jesus wonít be voting
Heís not your party crashiní dog in this fight
Not a fan rootiní for your home team
Donít insure that your future is bright

Chorus:
Thatís Jesus in the homeless faces
With the junkies in their liviní hell
Thatís Jesus with the drunks and in
The lonely places
The rest homes and prison cells
Thatís where Jesus is
Where we ought to be
Hereís where Jesus works
Inside you and me
With the folks with AIDS
And the suffering kids
Thatís where Jesus hangs
Thatís where Jesus is/lives

On the corner Ďround the prostitutes
Is where Heíll probably show
He gets invited to church sometimes
And sometimes He donít go
Donít care nuthiní about your status
What you can or you canít afford
Donít care if youíre voted best actor
Not impressed with your big award

Heís not in the five star restaurant
Eating a six course meal
Heís not over on some golf course
Discussing the oil deal

He wants our voice (Thatís where Jesus is)
Thatís how He talks (Thatís where Jesus is)
He wants our feet (Thats where Jesus is)
Thatís how He walks (Thatís where Jesus is)
And He wants our faith (Thatís where Jesus is)
But thereís never enough
He wants our hearts (Thatís where Jesus is)
Thatís how He Loves

Chorus:
Thatís Jesus in the homeless faces
With the junkies in their liviní hell
It's Jesus in the tenement spaces
The lonely places
The rest homes and prison cells

Thatís where Jesus is
Thatís where Jesus is
Thatís where Jesus is
