Beer With Jesus

My husband was leaving on a business trip this morning and I took him to pick up his rental car.  On the way back, the song Beer With Jesus by Thomas Rhett (September 2012) came on the radio.  The song really touched my heart-strings because I have been longing for such a time with Jesus, just sitting around, shooting the breeze, laughing, crying, sharing my heart with a dear friend.  I have that kind of time with him now spirit-to-Spirit, but oh, to actually sit down and chat face-to-face, with no time constraint and no care in the world, that would be awesome!  My drink of choice would be coffee instead of beer though.  Perhaps Jim Beam Bourbon-flavored coffee, with some cream and a generous glob of whipped cream on top.  I can just imagine Jesus and me, laughing at each other’s whipped cream mustaches!  😀

BEER WITH JESUS by Thomas Rhett (2012)

If I could have a beer with Jesus
Heaven knows I’d sip it nice and slow
I’d try to pick a place that ain’t too crowded
Or gladly go wherever he wants to go

You can bet I’d order up a couple tall ones
Tell the waitress put ‘em on my tab
I’d be sure to let him do the talkin’
Careful when I got the chance to ask

How’d you turn the other cheek
To save a sorry soul like me?
Do you hear the prayers I send?
What happens when life ends?
And when you think you’re comin’ back again?
I’d tell everyone, but no one would believe it,
If I could have a beer with Jesus

If I could have a beer with Jesus
I’d put my whole paycheck in that jukebox
Fill it up with nothing but the good stuff
Sit somewhere we couldn’t see a clock

Ask him how’d you turn the other cheek
To save a sorry soul like me?
Have you been there from the start
How’d you change a sinner’s heart?
And is heaven really just beyond the stars?
I’d tell everyone, but no one would believe it,
If I could have a beer with Jesus

He can probably only stay, for just a couple rounds
But I hope and pray he’s stayin’ till we shut the whole place down

Ask him how’d you turn the other cheek
To save a sorry soul like me?
What’s on the other side?
Is mom and daddy alright?
And if it ain’t no trouble tell them I said “Hi”.
I’d tell everyone but no one would believe it,
If I could have a beer with Jesus
I’d tell everyone but no one would believe it,
If I could have a beer with Jesus
