Jesus And The Atheist Recorded by Eddy Arnold Written by Billy Austine and Happy Rhodes
C One Saturday night in a barroom G7 A gospel singer walked in
And bravely she read from the bible C And begged them to turn from their sins
Oh come unto Jesus she pleaded C7 F He'll be your staff and your rod C When one of the drinkers said to her G7 C Why I don't believe in your God
F C I don't rightly know how you prove them F C That pack of lies that you've said F C If there is a God up in heaven G7 C I dare Him to strike me down dead
F C The silence that followed was awful F C The others stood there in fear F C But the drunkard just laughed and kept saying D7 G7 Why doesn't your Jesus appear
C Then one of the others who stood there G7 Said that's enough of that now
What leads you to think that Lord Jesus C Would bother with you anyhow
You're only a bum and a drunkard C7 F And nothing that you can say C Would reach up to God in His heaven G7 C And make Him go out of His way
F And then came the voice of a stranger C D7 Who stood just outside at the door G7 C A stranger who said He was passing by F C But no one had seen Him before
Oh listen to me all you people G7 The place lit up as He smiled C G7 Our Lord marks the fall of a sparrow C G7 C And every man is His child
F There's none so great or so lowly C D7 That God's sweet mercy denies G7 C And even the ones to denounce Him G7 C Will never be lost in His eyes
D7 G7 And then He lifted His right hand C And He smiled upon everyone F C And the last words He said were like music G7 C I know because I am His son
Now each who was there will remember C7 F Those words to His very last day C When Jesus appeared in a barroom G7 C And told of God's wonderful way
