  • I, I prefer your love
    To Jesus
    (Little baby on your knees
    Cause the world has got you down)

    Name tag to the sick at the side of them
    Tight-walking the sidewalk in spite of them
    As my head it moves from East to West
    Mother, won't you open your arms and
    Forgive me of all these bad thoughts I'm
    Blinded to the faces in the fog?

    But all the good in me is because of you
    (It's true!)
    I, I prefer your love
    To Jesus
    I, I prefer your love
    To Jesus

    (Little baby on your knees
    Cause the world has got you down)

    King size country, where in the worries I
    Endlessly, by the pylons
    As a careless sun set it's on the West
    Sure as mother licking a finger
    Wipe the blush and the smudge from my cheek and
    Wonder what will become of your little one
    But all the good in me is because of you

    It's true
    I, I prefer your love
    To Jesus
    I, I prefer your love
    To Jesus
    Little baby on your knees
    Cause the world has got you down Writer/s: ANNE ERIN CLARK
