Lyrics

My mama taught me lessons about love and peace and life
She taught me through her living in good times and in strife

Now the Pope says it’s okay if I don’t believe in God
I guess you don’t have to know Jesus to write a gospel song

Pope Francis said some things that give my soul a rest
Being spiritual doesn’t mean I need religion as a nest

It’s okay my church is nature and not just brick and stone
I guess you don’t have to know Jesus to write a gospel song

It’s all about brotherhood, kindness, truth and love
The sort we find inside ourselves and not just from above

The light of the spirit is deep inside each one
I guess you don’t have to know Jesus to write a gospel song

Mother Teresa showed me how to live this way
My Presbyterian rearing didn’t hurt in any way

I learned to love & honor others, all along
I guess you don’t have to know Jesus to write a gospel song

It’s all about sisterhood, kindness, truth and love
The sort we find inside ourselves and not just from above

The light of the spirit is deep inside each one
I guess you don’t have to know Jesus to write a gospel song
