By: Joan Osborne
Sung by: New Directions
Solos: Finn, Kurt, Mercedes, Quinn, Rachel, and Tina

Episode: Grilled Cheesus

One of Us by Joan Osborne is featured in Grilled Cheesus, the third episode of Season Two. It is sung by the New Directions with solos from Finn, Kurt, Mercedes, Quinn, Rachel, and Tina.

The kids are initially not allowed to sing religious songs, but Sue (who sees the performance and is moved by its compassion) tells Will that she will not report him for letting the glee club perform the song. After the song, it cuts to Kurt next to Burt's bedside in the hospital, as the episode comes to an end.

Lyrics

Tina:
If God had a name
What would it be?
And would you call it to his face?
If you were faced with him in all his glory
What would you ask if you had just one question?

Finn with New Directions:
And yeah, yeah
God is great
Yeah, yeah
God is good
Yeah, yeah

Rachel with Finn and New Directions:
Yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin' to make his way home
Tryin' to make his way home

Kurt (with Quinn):
(If God had a face)
What would it look like?
And (would you want to see?)
If seeing meant that you would (have to believe)
In things like heaven (and in Jesus and the Saints)
And (all the Prophets)

Finn with New Directions:
And yeah, yeah
God is great
Yeah, yeah
God is good
Yeah, yeah

Rachel with Finn, Mercedes, and New Directions:
Yeah, yeah, yeah

What if God was one of us

Rachel with Finn New Directions (with Mercedes):
Just a slob like one of us
Just a stranger on the bus
Tryin' to make his way (home)
Tryin' to make his way home

Back up to heaven all alone
Nobody callin' on the phone (Mercedes: Phone)
'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome

Finn with New Directions (with Rachel):
And yeah, yeah
God is great
Yeah, yeah
(God is good)

Finn and Rachel (and Mercedes) with New Directions:
Yeah, yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah) (Mercedes: Yeah)

Rachel with Finn and New Directions (Mercedes):
What if God was one of us (What if God was one of us)
(Rachel: Oh) Just a slob like one of us (Just a slob like one of us)
(Rachel: Oh) Just a stranger on the bus (Yeah, yeah)
Tryin' to make his way home (Tryin' to make his way home)
Just tryin' to make his way home (Tryin' to find his way home)

Rachel (with New Directions):
Just (like a holy rollin' stone) (Tina: Like a holy rollin' stone)

Finn with New Directions (with Mercedes):
Back up to (heaven all alone)

Rachel and New Directions (Tina):
Just tryin' to make his way home (Way home, ooh)

Tina (New Directions):
(Yeah, yeah, God is great) Nobody callin' on the phone
(Yeah, yeah, God is good) 'Cept for the Pope maybe in Rome
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
