Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who cares
Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who's there 
Feeling unknown
And you're all alone
Flesh and bone
By the telephone
Lift up the receiver
I'll make you a believer 
Take second best
Put me to the test
Things on your chest
You need to confess

I will deliver
You know I'm a forgiver 
Reach out and touch faith
Reach out and touch faith 
Your own personal Jesus

Feeling unknown
And you're all alone
Flesh and bone
By the telephone
Lift up the receiver
I'll make you a believer 

I will deliver
You know I'm a forgiver 
Reach out and touch faith 
Your own personal Jesus 
Reach out and touch faith
