JESUS WAS A CROSS MAKER
Written by Judee Sill and recorded by Judie Tzuke

Sweet silver angels over the sea
Please come down flying low for me

One time I trusted a stranger cos I heard his sweet song
And it was gently enticing me though there was something wrong
But when I turned he was gone

Blinding me his song remains reminding me
He's a bandit and a heart breaker
Oh but Jesus was a cross maker

Sweet silver angels over the sea
Please come down flying low for me

He wages war with the devil, a pistol by his side
And though he chases him out windows and won't give him a place to hide
He keeps his door open wide

Fighting him he lights the lamp inviting him
He's a bandit and a heart breaker
Oh but Jesus was a cross maker

Sweet silver angels over the sea
Please come down flying low for me

I heard the thunder come rumbling the light never looked so dim
I see the junction get nearer and danger is in the wind
And either road's looking grim

Hiding me I flee, desire dividing me
He's a bandit and a heart breaker
Oh but Jesus was a cross maker

Sweet silver angels over the sea
Please come down flying low for me
Stay with me till dawn
