Personal Jesus

Depeche Mode’s ‘Personal Jesus’ is about someone willing to take on the woes and worries of another. And help them with surrendering those cares with a sound flogging or caning.

That second part is an extrapolation, but I think it’s obvious. Right? Right.

It’s clearly from the point of view of a D-type or a top.

The song has a gritty sound and a moderate beat, good for heavier scenes.

‘Personal Jesus’ by Martin Gore

Reach out and touch faith

Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who cares
Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who’s there

Feeling unknown
And you’re all alone
Flesh and bone
By the telephone
Lift up the receiver
I’ll make you a believer

Take second best
Put me to the test
Things on your chest
You need to confess
I will deliver
You know I’m a forgiver

Reach out and touch faith
Reach out and touch faith

Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who cares
Your own personal Jesus
Someone to hear your prayers
Someone who’s there

Feeling unknown
And you’re all alone
Flesh and bone
By the telephone
Lift up the receiver
I’ll make you a believer
I will deliver
You know I’m a forgiver

Reach out and touch faith

Your own personal Jesus

Reach out and touch faith
