Jesus was a working man,
He labored with His rustic tools all day.
He packed his lunch and stayed on the job,
He walked to work early each morning,
He might have hitched a ride on a camel or an ass,
He didn't own a cellular phone,
But He was the best communicator there ever was,
and that's a pretty sure bet.
He could have been a priest or a businessman,
But he chose to live the simple life,
He struggled with the animals on his uncle's farm,
He became skilled at the trades of men,
He fished on the Lake in an open boat,
Then talked to the Father out under the stars,
So sometimes if it seems like you can't get ahead,
Remember that life is but a day's work,
and Jesus was a working man.
