Simon Zealotes Lyrics

Simon Zealotes Song Lyrics


CROWD

Christ you know I love you.
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved.
Christ you know I love you.
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God
So tell me that I'm saved.
Jesus I am with you.
Touch me, touch me, Jesus.
Jesus I am on your side.
Kiss me, kiss me, Jesus.

SIMON ZEALOTES

Christ, what more do you need to convince you
That you've made it, and you're easily as strong
As the filth from Rome who rape our country,
And who've terrorized our people for so long.

CROWD

Jesus I am with you.
Touch me, touch me, Jesus.
Jesus I am on your side.
Kiss me, kiss me, Jesus.

Christ you know I love you.
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God,
So tell me that I'm saved.

Christ you know I love you.
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God,
So tell me that I'm saved.

Christ you know I love you.
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God,
So tell me that I'm saved.

Christ you know I love you.
Did you see I waved?
I believe in you and God,
So tell me that I'm saved.

Jesus I am with you.
Touch me, touch me, Jesus.
Jesus I am on your side.
Kiss me, kiss me, Jesus.

SIMON ZEALOTES

There must be over fifty thousand
Screaming love and more for you.
And everyone of fifty thousand
Would do whatever you asked them to.
Keep them yelling their devotion,
But add a touch of hate at Rome.
You will rise to a greater power.
We will win ourselves a home.
You'll get the power and the glory
For ever and ever and ever
You'll get the power and the glory
For ever and ever and ever
You'll get the power and the glory
For ever and ever and ever
You'll get the power and the glory
For ever and ever and ever
Forever Amen! Amen! Amen!



About

May, 07th 2014
The song "Simon Zealotes" from "Jesus Christ Superstar" vividly poetrays the fervent adoration of Jesus by his followers and Simon's own vision for Jesus' role in their society. It reflects the high expectations and political hopes projected onto Jesus, contrasting with his spiritual mission.

The opening lines by the crowd express their deep decotion and longing for salvation through Jesus, indicated by the repeated phrases, “Christ, you know I love you” and “tell me that I’m saved.” This chorus reflects the public's desire for spiritual guidance and affirmation from Jesus, showcasing their belief in him as a divine figure.

Simon Zealotes, a zealous follower, urges Jesus to capitalize on his popularity and lead a rebellion against Roman oppression. Simon's words, “Christ, what more do you need to convince you that you’ve made it,” suggest he sees Jesus as a potential political and military leader capable of overthrowing the Roman authorities. His suggestion to “add a touch of hate at Rome” reveals Simon’s desire for a more aggressive, earthly form of leadership from Jesus, focusing on liberation and retribution.

The chorus of “You’ll get the power and the glory forever and ever and ever” sung by Simon illustrates his conviction that Jesus can achieve enduring power and glory through leading a popular uprising. This is in stark contrast to Jesus' actual teachings and purpose, which centered on love, forgiveness, and spiritual salvation.

Overall, "Simon Zealotes" captures the intense emotional and political atmosphere surrounding Jesus. It highlights the disconnect between the public's expectations of Jesus as a political savior and his actual mission, emphasizing the tension between earthly desires for political liberation and the spiritual redemption offered by Jesus.
