OPINIONS

"Jesus Freak" is a well known Christian song by dc Talk. It is one of their most well-known songs. The song is about the 1970's generic term which was meant to insult Christians. dc Talk frontman Toby McKeehan said that when he was looking up the word "freak" in the dictionary, he saw an entry that said "ardent enthusiast".

Lyrics

What will people think
When they hear that I’m a Jesus freak?
What will people do
When they find that’s it’s true? 

Separated, I cut myself clean
From a past that comes back in my darkest of dreams
Been apprehended by a spiritual force
And a grace that replaced all the me I’ve divorced

I saw a man with tat on his big fat belly
It wiggled around like marmalade jelly
It took me a while to catch what it said
Cause I had to match the rhythm
Of his belly with my head
’Jesus saves’ is what it raved in a typical tattoo green
He stood on a box in the middle of the city
And claimed he had a dream

What will people think
When they hear that I’m a Jesus freak?
What will people do
When they find that’s it’s true? 
What will people think
When they hear that I’m a Jesus freak
What will people do when they find that it’s true
I don’t really care if they label me a Jesus freak
There ain’t no disguising the truth

Kamikaze, my death is gain
I’ve been marked by my maker
A peculiar display
The high and lofty, they see me as weak
Cause I won’t live and die for the power they seek
There was a man from the desert with naps in his head
The sand that he walked was also his bed
The words that he spoke made the people assume
There wasn’t too much left in the upper room
With skins on his back and hair on his face
They thought he was strange by the locusts he ate
The pharisees tripped when they heard him speak
Until the king took the head of this Jesus freak

What will people think
When they hear that I’m a Jesus freak?
What will people do
When they find that’s it’s true? 
What will people think
When they hear that I’m a Jesus freak
What will people do when they find that it’s true
I don’t really care if they label me a Jesus freak
There ain’t no disguising the truth

People say I’m strange, does it make me a stranger
That my best friend was born in a manger
People say I’m strange, does it make me a stranger
That my best friend was born in a manger

What will people think (what will people think)
What will people do (what will people do)
I don’t really care (what else can I say)
There ain’t no disguising the truth (Jesus is the way)
