The enduring truth of Genesis

The truth of Genesis... the band Genesis, that is.

Jesus, He knows me



You see the face on the TV screen
Coming at you every Sunday
See that face on the billboard
That man is me

On the cover of the magazine
Theres no question why I'm smiling
You buy a piece of paradise
You buy a piece of me

Ill get you everything you wanted
Ill get you everything you need
Don't need to believe in hereafter
Just believe in me

'Cos Jesus he knows me
And he knows I'm right
Ive been talking to Jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me
And he knows I'm right
And hes been telling me
Everything is alright

I believe in the family
With my ever loving wife beside me
But she don't know about my girlfriend
Or the man I met last night

Do you believe in god
Cos thats what I'm selling
And if you wanna get to heaven
Ill see you right

You wont even have to leave your house
Or get outta your chair
You don't even have to touch that dial
Cos I'm everywhere

And Jesus he knows me
And he knows I'm right
Ive been talking to Jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me
And he knows I'm right
Well hes been telling me
Everything s gonna be alright

Wont find me practicing what I'm preaching
Wont find me making no sacrifice
But I can get you a pocketful of miracles
If you promise to be good, try to be nice
God will take good care of you
Just do as I say, don't do as I do

I'm counting my blessings,
Ive found true happiness
Cos I'm getting richer, day by day
You can find me in the phone book,
Just call my toll free number
You can do it anyway you want
Just do it right away

There'll be no doubt in your mind
You'll believe everything Im saying
If you wanna get closer to him
Get on your knees and start paying

Cos Jesus he knows me
And he knows I'm right
Ive been talking to Jesus all my life
Oh yes he knows me
And he knows I'm right
Well hes been telling me
Everything's gonna be alright, alright

Jesus he knows me
Jesus he knows me, you know...

There was a rumor floating around during my Xian days that Collins Accepted jesus shortly after this video came out.

Somehow, I think that is not true. Is there really evidence? snopes.com?
