Del Amitri

Del Amitri were a Scottish alternative rock band, formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 1983. The band grew out of Justin Currie's Jordanhill College School band and came together after teenager Currie placed an advertisement in the window of a music store asking for people who could play to contact him. The band was formed with the original line-up of Currie (bass and vocals), Iain Harvie (lead guitar), Bryan Tolland (guitar) and Paul Tyagi (drums). Currie and Harvie are the only members of the band to remain present throughout its history. They are also the main songwriters of the group. more »

Jesus saves, saves little children in distress
Jesus saves, He saves the sick, the penniless
Jesus saves, He saves the dying in their beds
Jesus saves, He saves the drowning, saves the wrecks
Jesus saves, He saves the pure and leaves the rest

Jesus saves, He saves the homeless on the streets
Jesus saves, saves the afflicted, saves the meek
Jesus saves, He saves the hungry, saves the weak
Jesus saves, saves every soul that He can reach
Jesus saves, He saves the useful, leaves the obsolete

Jesus loves, He loves the underdog, he does
Jesus loves downtrodden sinners just like us
Jesus loves, He loves to hear the sound of pain
Just because, well, He can't save you if you ain't one of us
The damned, the blind, the deaf, the never walk again

Jesus gives to the lame, He gives their limps
Jesus gives to the prostitutes, their pimps
Jesus gives, gives us the crack head's crying wince
Jesus gives, He gives the derelicts their drinks
Jesus gives, so He can watch the swamp of people squirm and sink

'Cause Jesus craves, He craves the brotherhood of man
Jesus craves the bony gripping of its hands
Jesus craves, He craves the cross, He craves the nails
Jesus craves, He craves the pain the mortal feels
Jesus craves all the cruelty that ever made Him real

Jesus saves, saves every sinner you can see
Jesus saves, saves even amateurs like me
Jesus saves, saves a men of evil, men of greed
Jesus saves, saves you from thinking
Just believe that Jesus saves and you can lemming
Like go walking to the cliffs of eternity
