Serie "Alabanzas distintas" 9.: Dios, uno de nosotros

Un forastero en el autobús?

Mientras que regularmente escucho canciones de alabanza y adoración, estoy absolutamente fascinado con los artistas que se encuentran en el mundo de mainstream, y escriben canciones sobre Dios y su vida spiritual.

En 1995 era muy joven, y esos años fueron los formativos para mí en cuanto a mi educación y socialización. No entendí ni una palabra de la canción de Joan Osborne, "One of us", pero la fabulosa Intro, el vídeo único y la melodía fueron muy emocionantes. Todavía siento el mismo asombro cuando escucho esta canción. Y 25 años después, empiezo a entender el texto... 

If God had a name what would it be?
And would you call it to his face?
If you were faced with Him in all His glory
What would you ask if you had just one question?
 
And yeah, yeah, God is great
Yeah, yeah, God is good
And yeah, yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah
 
What if God was one of us?
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin' to make his way home?
 
If God had a face what would it look like?
And would you want to see if, seeing meant
That you would have to believe in things like heaven
And in Jesus and the saints, and all the prophets?

Like back up to heaven all alone
Nobody callin' on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome
 
Just tryin' to make his way home
Like a holy rolling stone
Back up to heaven all alone
Just tryin' to make his way home
Nobody callin' on the phone
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome
