Where Is Jesus?

from Between Earth and Heaven by James Delsono

lyrics

There's this modern "spirituality"
Where everything is "just for me" ...
Where heaven's door's locked up, you see,
And lets us in, but for a fee ...

It's all about "enlightenment"
It's all 'bout "self-improvement"
It's all about what WE can get ...
And there is something left unsaid:

Where is Jesus?
"Love your neighbour as yourself"
Where is Jesus?
"Love him so, no more no less" ...

Where is Jesus?
"There's no greater love than this ..."
Where is Jesus?
"Than loving your enemies ..."

Nowadays, the selfish gene
We let loose like a machine;
We have never quite enough
And if others suffer? "Tough!

Where's it said I have to care
For my brother? Let him bear
His own fardels, his own weight!"
That's how hate we generate ...

Where is Jesus?
"Love your neighbour as yourself"
Where is Jesus?
"Love him so, no more no less" ...

Where is Jesus?
"There's no greater love than this ..."
Where is Jesus?
"Than loving your enemies ..."

And thus we give our conceit
Record heights for it to hit;
Meditate we do, for more
For ourselves, for evermore ...

We have never quite enough,
And if others suffer? "Tough!"
Is there another way, you know,
For us all to save our souls?

Where is Jesus?
"Love your neighbour as yourself"
Where is Jesus?
"Love him so, no more no less" ...

Where is Jesus?
"There's no greater love than this ..."
Where is Jesus?
"Than loving your enemies ..."

Where is Jesus?

Where is Jesus?
