Where Jesus Is by Joey and Rory Lyrics and Video

19 Jul

The song “Where Jesus is” by Joey and Rory is a perfect song to illustrate the humility with which Jesus came to Earth.  The song describes the way that Heaven reaches down to Earth without churches or steeples, without special clothes or robes. This is a fact presented in great detail in Chapter 17 of the Jesus Josephovich parables, a chapter entitled, “The Cathedral“.

The song’s final line captures perfectly the message of Jesus Christ as illustrated in the stories of Jesus Josephovich and his travels through the Ukraine: “It’s all Holy Ground.”

This morning the pews
Were hay bales
The pulpit a sack
Thrown over a stall
The floor just a carpet of sawdust
The baptistry was
A rusty old trough

(Chorus)
There were no steeples
There were no candles
But Heaven came down
There were no suits
Just worn out boots
Standing on holy ground
I guess it’s true
If even two
Are gathered in his midst
That’s where Jesus is

Somewhere they were gathered
And praying
Their alter a foot locker
Dropped in the sand
Sunday’s at home
Just a memory
But there in that tent
They still felt his hand

(Repeat Chorus)

On an airplane
Or this old bus
In the silence
He always meets us

Where there’s no steeples
Where there’s no candles
Heaven comes down
In our Sunday shoes
Or in our cowboy boots
It’s all holy ground
I guess it’s true
If even two
Are gathered in his midst
That’s where Jesus is
That’s where Jesus is
