God Fearing Man Lyrics

by Ben Harper

Listen mister, brother, sister
Family and friend
I fear with each day pass
Our time grows closer to the end

Listen stranger, passerby
And those I never knew
And not one day that you are living
Has been promised to you

And I am a God fearing man
I'm a God, I'm a God fearing man
And I reach out, I reach out for my God's hand
I'm a God fearing man

Listen mother, sister, brother
Relatives and kin
You want to know just where you're going
You've got to know where you've been

And tell me what gives one the right
To say their God is better than anybody else
Don't we all have a right
To find God for ourself

And I am a, God, God fearing man
I'm a God, hey, hey, hey, hey God fearing man
And I reach out for my, for my God's hands
I'm a God fearing, fearing man
Yes I am

So when I rise with the morning sun
I give thanks to my God for the gift of another one
Oh and when my day is over and complete
I reach to my God to put me back on my feet

And I am a God fearing man
I'm a, I, I, I'm a hey, hey God
And I reach out for my God's hand
I'm a God fearing man
Yes I am
