Brano del giorno: "If Jesus..." Buona Pasqua!

"If Jesus Had to Pray What About Me", interpretato da Mother Willie Mae Ford Smith



1. Well if Jesus had to pray,
What about me, what about me?
Yes if Jesus had to pray,
What about me, what about me?
He had to fall down on bended knee,
Calling His Father, "Help me please!"
Lord if Jesus had to pray,
What about me, what about po' me?

2. In the Garden of Gethsemane
Jesus went low, on bended knee,
Calling His Father up in heaven,
"Help me please! Help me please!"
When His strength was almost gone,
Lord He bent down on the ground.
Yes if Jesus had to pray,
What about me, what about po' me?

3. And when they hung Him high, for all to see,
His heart was low as lonely can be.
He called on His Father,
"Why hast Thou forsaken Me?"
When His spirit had fallen down,
Must have felt lower than the ground.
Yes if Jesus had to pray,
What about me, what about po' me?

4. And as He died, there on Calvary,
Still he prayed, yes He prayed for you and me.
Calling His Father in heaven,
"Forgive them, please! Forgive them please!"
He looked in love, at the crowd around,
Hearts full of anger, or broken down.
Yes if Jesus had to pray,
What about me, what about po' me?

Tipico black gospel, lento e travagliato come la stessa Passione di Cristo, lanciato nel 1949 dallo Spirit of Memphis Quartet sull'etichetta King Records, ma cantato anche dal grande Robert Anderson.
Nel video sottostante lo stesso brano in un'altra intensa versione: dei Consolers.
