Jesus was a Black man
Jesus was a Jew
Jesus lives inside of me
He lives inside of you

With skin like burnished bronze
And hair as coarse as wool
Jesus don't look much like
What they taught in Bible school

Jesus was a homeless
Middle Eastern refugee
He lives inside of you, my friend
He lives inside of me

They say it's your birthday
Happy birthday, Jesus
