      Johnny Cash - Here Was A Man Música y Letra

      Here was a man, a man
      Who was born in a small village
      The son of a peasant woman
      He grew up in another small village
      Until he reached the age of thirty
      He worked as a carpenter
      
      Then for three years
      He was a traveling minister
      But he never traveled more
      Than two hundred miles from
      Where he was born and
      Where he did go he usually walked
      
      He never held political office
      He never wrote a book
      Never bought a home
      Never had a family
      He never went to college
      And he never set foot inside a big city
      
      Yes, here was a man
      
      Though he never did one on the things
      Usually associated with greatness
      He had no credentials but himself
      He had nothing to do with this world
      Except through the divine purpose
      That brought him to this world
      
      While he was still a young man
      The tide of popular opinion turned against him
      Most of his friends ran away
      One of them denied him
      One of them betrayed him
      And turned him over to his enemies
      Then he went through the mockery of a trial
      
      And was nailed to a cross between two thieves
      And even while he was dying
      His executioners gambled
      For the only piece of property
      That he had in this world
      And that was his robe his purple robe
      
      When he was dead
      He was taken down from the cross
      And laid in a borrowed grave
      Provided by compassionate friends
      More than nineteen centuries have come and gone
      And today he's a centerpiece of the human race
      Our leader in the column to human destiny
      
      I think, I'm well within the mark when I say
      That all of the armies that ever marched
      All of the navies that ever sailed the seas
      All of the legislative bodies that ever sat
      And all of the kings that ever reigned
      All of them put together have not affected
      The life of man on this earth
      So powerfully as that one solitary life
      
      Here was a man
      (Joy to the world, the Lord is come)
