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
 Someone to hear your prayers  Someone who cares 

Your own personal Jesus
 Someone to hear your prayers  Someone to care

 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
 Reach out and touch faith
 Reach out and touch faith
 Reach out and touch faith
