At the start of the summer of 1999 I had tried to find the lyrics from Godspell on the web. I found a couple good pages but they kept closing for repairs. So I decided I'd just have my own Godspell lyrics page. All lyrics are from the movie version unless otherwise noted. If you notice any mistakes you can email me.
God bless,
