The Rebel Jesus- Bebo Norman Lyrics

The Rebel Jesus
By: Bebo Norman

Lyrics:
All the streets are filled with laughter and light
And the music of the season
And the merchant’s windows are all bright
With the faces of the children

And the families hurry into their homes
As the sky darkens and freezes
We’ll be gathering around our hearths and tables
Giving thanks for God’s graces
And the birth of the rebel Jesus

Well, they call Him by the Prince of peace
And they call Him by the Savior
And they pray to Him upon the seats
And in every bold endeavor

And they fill His churches with their pride and gold
As their faith in Him increases
But they’ve turned the nature that I worship in
From a temple to a robber’s den
In the words of the rebel Jesus

We guard our world with locks and guns
And we guard our fine possessions
And once a year when Christmas comes
We give to our relations

And perhaps we give a little to the poor
If the generosity should seize us
But if anyone of us should interfere
In the business of why there are poor
We get the same as the rebel Jesus

But pardon me if I have seemed
To take the tone of judgment
For I’ve no wish to come between
This day and your enjoyment

In a life of hardship and of earthly toil
There’s a need for anything that frees us
So I bid you pleasure and I bid you cheer
From a heathen and a pagan
On the side of the rebel Jesus
