Christian Ska Band Sings “Jesus Is My Friend”

This is a ’70s Christian ska band called “Sonseed,” singing a song called “Jesus Is My Friend” to that shag-danceable ska music. From the costumes to the singer to the lyrics in which Jesus is apparently stalking him, why it wasn’t the very first thing anyone ever put up on the internet is a mystery. It’s amazing:

Once I tried to run
I tried to run and hide
But Jesus came and found me
And touched me down inside

There’s also a mention of Mounties, so it might even be Canadian! This must be seen to be believed:

Via Dougsploitation, who apparently owned the videotape for years and just now got it digitized for the internet’s pleasure. I would love to find out what that singer’s doing now (and whether Jesus is still his friend.)
