"The Preacher Said Jesus Said" lyrics

The Preacher Said Jesus Said

(With Billy Graham)

Well, with everybody trying to tell us
What to do
You wonder how are you to know
Whose word is true

But the preacher just keep on
A bringing us a very same word
And from Saint Paul to Billy Graham
The same is heard

And the preacher said of truth
Jesus said
And Jesus said
"I'm the way
The truth and the life"

Well, we can see that the world
Is full of greed
There's so much hate
Yet there is so much need

What should we do
When no one seems to care?
What can we do
When there is no love there?

And then the preacher said of love
Jesus said
Jesus said
"Love thy neighbor
As thyself"

Well, please tell us the road
We oughta go
In such confusion
How are we to know?

And if there is a heaven
Show us to its gates
Oh, you'd better tell us, preacher
Before it's too late

And then the preacher said of heaven
Jesus said
Jesus said
"Seek the first the kingdom of God
And his righteousness
And all these things
Shall be added unto you"

Well, please tell us
How we can find a way
To climb every mountain
That we face every day

And in time of troubles
What to depend upon
To be the truth
And help us carry on

And the preacher said of trouble
Jesus said
Jesus said
"Let not your heart be troubled
If you believe in God
Believe also in me
In my father's house
Are many mansions
If it were not so
I would have told you
I go to prepare a place for you
And if I prepare a place for you
I will come again
And receive you unto myself
That where I am
There you may be also"
