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
