lyrics

Jesus Christ was a labouring man
Worked all day with his own two hands
Worked all day in a carpenter's shop
With a hammer and nails
And a measuring rod

Took his lunch with the people there
Brother worker, and sister fair
Laughing 'neath the olive tree
With jokes and stories, memories

It's just another day, at the carpenter's shop
Just another day, with the son of God
He's making good things for people to use
Talking about the weather, and the local news

See him now, the door he builds
Shapes the wood, and he marks the nails
Carries it through the streets of town
To a customer's house

Watch him set that door in place
When the job is done he collects his pay
A fine strong door, for a winter's night
From hands that set the stars alight

He said, "Blessed are the meek
And blessed are the humble
For you shall inherit the earth."
