Story

Words and Music by Timothy Suckow, written February 2015.

 

"What If" answers the question put forth by Joan Osborne in her song "What If God Was One of Us?" The answer is God was in fact one of us when He came down to earth in the person of Jesus, and therefore knows everything we face.

 

"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14  "They said to Him therefore, Where is your Father? Jesus answered, You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would know my Father also." John 8:19

 

He knows our every pain and every strife.  "Jesus wept." John 11:35 

 

Experimental electronic rock anthem complete with a rap verse.

Lyrics

What if God was one of us - a human like the rest of us
What if God was one of us? mmhmmm

Temptations and our greatest fears fill our lives through all our years
He would know only if He was here

Jesus is the Son of Man - the baby born in Bethlehem
Son of God and Son of Man - uh huh - o yeah

He came to earth - was born to die
For His best friend He was crucified
He knows our every pain and every strife

What if this is real? How much do I know?
Help me break the seal and cause my mind to grow

You only see the best in me, forget about the rest in me
What if You only saw the good?
Now I understand - Son of God and Son of Man
He lived the life that I should live
He died the death that I deserve
Son of God and Son of Man
He came to save me as I am
God Himself came down to earth
Taught us not to take - but serve

What if this is real? How much do I know?
Help me break the seal and cause my mind to grow

Messiah
My Savior
Lord of All
Lamb of God
