IF JESUS HAD A GUN
Cho: If Jesus had a gun, He would not abuse it
He would keep it handy, in case he had to use it
Now if some tough guys, pushed Him down, or
They disrespected Mary, ... you know, Jesus was her
If Jesus had a gun, He wouldn’t need to fight
He’d just pull it out and show ’em, and say “You better
What if thieves were robbing Joe, you know, Jesus’
Well He could use His gun t’save him, now that wouldn’t
be so bad
But He’d never shoot somebody, ’cause He knows it’s really
No, Jesus wouldn’t hurt a flea, unless He really had to
If some mean guy abused a little kid
Jesus would get mad! He wouldn’t like what that guy did
If Jesus couldn’t make him pray, or He couldn’t find a cop
Well He might take out his gun just to get the guy to stop
If people were starving, He could shoot a goat or lamb
I don’t think He’d shoot a pig, ’cause He didn’t like ham
In Jerusalem they’d holler, they’d say “Jesus! You’re
And if Jesus had a gun, they’d never put Him on a cross!
If Jesus had a gun they’d never put Him on a cross!
Chorus & Instrumental Chorus
Jesus was God’s kid, and prob’ly fast with a gun!
He prob’ly knew the best way to get things done!
But if they didn’t put Him on the cross, then the story’s
not the same
If Jesus had a gun, would he use it in God’s name?
Sayin’ “Turn your other cheek, and love your fellow man!
What part of ‘Thou shalt not kill’, is hard to understand?!
Now, it’s God’s law! And all you people know it too!
You’re behavior’s temptin’ me, t’use my gun on you!”
Bridge: I think Moses and Mohammed lived with Jesus back
And they prob’ly didn’t have guns, they were probably friends!
If Jesus had a gun, I think He’d throw that gun away
’Cause He knows He might be tempted if He had a bad day
Yeah, if Jesus had a gun, He’d throw that gun away
He would never use it! He would find another way.
If Jesus had a gun, He’d throw the gun away
He would never use it! He’d find another way!
If Jesus had a gun, ...
I’m pretty sure that He would find another way!
