    If I'm Born in Nazareth

    If I'm born in Nazareth
    If I claim to be the Son of God
    You'll know my name, you'll know what it takes
    To call oneself the Son of God
    If three bearded men came over
    And left me with their pride
    You'll know my name, you'll know what it takes
    To be living, to nurse pride

    If I walked on water
    If I kissed the wounds you hurl at me in hatred
    You'll know my name, you'll know what it takes
    To live past your puny hatred
    If I ever had an epiphany
    I'd gift you a sonnet, or a hundred and fifty four
    You'll know my name then, you'll know what it takes
    To stand before you, to be what you call a whore

    If I lead you to the end of the rainbow
    And you thank for saving you again
    You'll know my name for sure, you'll know what it takes
    To swallow your words, and to love you in vain

    If I'm ever born in Nazareth
    When the downtown traffic hits hard in Calgary
    In a manger gawked at by a million stares
    Hawked at, balked at
    By a dozen puppet players

    You'll know my name again, you'll know what it takes
    To wear this Crown of Thorns
    To bear this wooden cross
