​Lost

This song is by Shirley Caesar and appears on the album Go (1981).

Maybe there's somebody right now
Wherever you are, I want you to stop and listen to me a little while
If you're in your automobiles or maybe you're sweeping the floor
Whatever you're doing, will you just listen to me right now
God told me to tell you that he so loved the world
That he gave his only son, that we might live, he died, that we might live

Now let me drop something else to you
Heaven is the highest word
Hell is the lowest word
Eternity is the longest word
Glory is the brightest word
Jesus is the sweetest word
But when you're lost and you don't have Jesus, sinner man
That's the saddest word

You're lost, if ye don't have Jesus in your life
Let me tell you how I know
He is so high you can't go over him
He is so low you can't go under him
You're lost, if you don't have my Jesus in your life
Caesar Singers will you tell them
You're lost, if you don't have my Jesus in your life
I like that, y'all

I got one more thing to tell you
He's so wide you can't go around him
Sinner man, open your mind to find him
You're lost, if you don't have your Jesus in your life
You're lost, if you don't have Jesus in your life

Now let me tell you why, listen
You've been drinking and gambling, you're lost, sinner man
And midnight rambling, you couldn't find peace anywhere
So you went to your friend and you tried to complain
You found him in the gutter waiting down there
You're walking and talking and doing your own thing
You say, man I'm too young to join that holy gang
You've been wheeling and dealing, trying to survive
You've been lying and claiming and you're trying to hide
If you come to Jesus, he'll make you a way to go
If you come to Jesus, if you come to Jesus
God wanna save you, God wanna heal you
He wanna pick you up and turn you around
And place your feet on holy ground
You're lost, sinner man
You're lost, sinner man
You're lost, you're lost
You're lost, when you don't know Jesus
You're living ??????
You're lost, you're lost, if you don't have Jesus in your life
You're lost, young man, if you don't have Jesus in your life
Sinner man
