Since me and Jesus got married
Haven’t been a minute apart
With the receiver in my hand
And re-ligion in my heart.

I can ring ‘im up easy
Ahhhhhh

They despised the Amen
Hanging on the Cross

They despised the Amen

Jesus gon make up my

Somebody said that I was lost
When it get down to Jordan
Have to bear my body across
Done gone over
Ahhhhhhhhh
Oh well
Done gone over
Make up my
