IF GOD CAME TO ME

I talk to God so often, it feels just like we're friends,
We visit every day, and I pray to him, amen.
I tell him that I'm grateful, and I tell him that I'm scared,
I tell him I might need his help, and I'm glad to know he's there.
But sometimes I dream,

chorus
If God came to me, he'd be my honored guest,
I'm just one of his children, and we never seem to let him rest.
But I'd heat up last night's chili and offer him a beer,
There ain't much else in my fridge,
But he'd be safe right here.
Just two souls searching for some answers,
If God came to me.

I imagine if she shows up, she'll be in some disguise,
But I'll recognize her instantly when I gaze into her eyes.
She might be someone that I helped or someone I may have hurt,
Somebody I may have ignored before who had no shoes or shirt.
But sometimes I still believe,

second chorus
If God came to me, she'd be my honored guest,
I'm just one of her children, and we never seem to let her rest.
But I'd heat up last night's chili and I'd offer her a beer,
There ain't much left in the fridge,
But she'd be safe right here.
Just two souls searching for some answers,
If God came to me.

bridge
If God knocked on my door, no one would believe,
He'd pick this humble man, that he'd be so naïve.
If God trusted me, I'd have an ear to lend,
One thing she can count on, I'll always be her friend.

final chorus
If God came to me, I'd know that I'd be blessed,
The world keeps him running, but sometimes he needs some rest.
I'd offer God my pillow and share a peaceful word,
When she's on her second beer, I'll be on my third,
Just two souls searching for some answers,
If God came to me.
We're lucky we can reach out for each other,
Thanks for being here with me,
Hey, are you ready for another beer?
