I don’t need no religion cos I got the Lord
Don’t need to work up to Him cos He came
Down & did it all
Don’t need no barefoot pilgrimages
Don’t need no porcelain images
Don’t need no candles lit
Don’t need no penance sit
Don’t need no religion
Jesus came & touched me
Don’t need no religion
He came down & changed me
Don’t need no religion
Don’t have to do a thing
Don’t need no religion
If I want to it’s out of loving Him
By faith
I don’t need no religion don’t need
No load on my back
No fall down no failure
No asceticism no fall back
I thought that I would work my way
Into God’s kingdom someday
But He let me know in time
Now I’m in His kingdom
And He’s ruling mine
