Can a Man Be Kind and Caring?

Music by Ron Klusmeier
Words by Brian Wren
Tune Name: RON MILLER

Lyrics as Poetry

Can a man be kind and caring?
Jesus was.
Can a man who’s kind and caring
be adventuresome and daring,
bravely doing right,
walking in the light?
Jesus did and so I can:
I will be a Jesus man.Can a man be sad with crying?
Jesus was.
Can a man who’s sad with crying,
shed his tears, yet keep on trying,
loving to the end,
enemy and friend?
Jesus did and so I can:
I will be a Jesus man.Can a man be hurt and broken?
Jesus was.
Can a man who’s hurt and broken
show his friends how God has spoken,
giving to us then,
power to start again?
Jesus did and so I can:
I will be a Jesus man.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
I will be a Jesus man.

Comments About Song

BRIAN WREN
from his book “Piece Together Praise” (p 32):


“A song for boys and men, attempting to redefine what it means to be a ‘real man’ in the light of the gospel record. Yet if Jesus can be a role model for boys and men, we must urgently ask if, and how, he can be an inspiration for women and girls.”
