I think this song was in supernatural , which is funny if you know the plot of supernatural . Let's just say they call Jesus "that hippie from Bethlehem" a couple of times

I raced through my last comment to get to norman g. now I realize I don't anything new to comment about norm (of course that particular problem never stopped me before). so let's just lift a glass to norman and thank him for all the good times he's brought to all of us. Hear's to you, Mr. Greenbaum. shalom alekhim (or however you spell that).

THE song from The Jesus Movement. Check the history on this, a real revival. Chuck Smith, Calvary Temple...

LOVE this song! Want it sung at my funeral. Family & friends were told long ago. They do have to change 2 lines though. From Never been a sinner I never sinned, I got a friend in Jesus to I am a sinner I have sinned. But I got a friend in Jesus. I love m,y Jesus and thank our precious God for giving us His little boy as our sacrificial Lamb.
