What If God Is One Of Us?

Itulah pertanyaan pada refrain lagu yang berhasil memberi Joan Osborne sejumlah penghargaan. Lewat One of Us, penyanyi Amerika ini pada tahun 1996 memborong 3 Grammy Award yakni Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Record of The Year, dan Song of The Year. VH1 juga memasukkan lagu ini dalam daftar 100 lagu terbaik era 90-an. Lirik lagu yang sempat menuai kontroversi ini ditulis oleh Eric Bazilian. Sang penulis sendiri mengatakan, “For me, the song was more about what happens to you when you look at something that has completely changed your world view, which could be meeting God, it could be meeting an alien, it could be a near-death experience, it could be anything like that. Just how everything you know is wrong, or everything you know is right, and you didn’t know it.”


One of Us
by Joan Osborne

If god had a name, what would it be?
And would you call it to his face
if you were faced with Him in all His glory?
What would you ask if you had just one question?

And yeah, yeah, God is great.
Yeah, yeah, God is good.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
What if god was one of us,
just a slob like one of us,
just a stranger on the bus trying to make his way home?

If God had a face, what would it look like?
And would you want to see
if seeing meant that you would have to believe
in things like heaven and in Jesus and the saints
and all the prophets?

And yeah, yeah, God is great.
Yeah, yeah, God is good.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
What if god was one of us,
just a slob like one of us,
just a stranger on the bus trying to make his way home?

Just trying to make his way home, back up to heaven all alone.
Nobody calling on the phone,
‘cept for the Pope maybe in Rome.

Yeah, yeah, God is great.
Yeah, yeah, God is good.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
What if god was one of us,
just a slob like one of us,
just a stranger on the bus trying to make his way home,
just trying to make his way home, just like a holy rolling stone?
Back up to heaven all alone, just trying to make his way home.

Nobody calling on the phone,
‘cept for the Pope maybe in Rome.

So, what if God is one of us?
And it could be a cat.. 🙂
