Morgan Wallen New Song “Don’t Think Jesus” Release Date, Lyrics and Listen

After releasing his record-breaking sophomore album “Dangerous: The Double Album” in January of 2021, Wallen will release his first solo album since then, titled “Don’t Think Jesus.”

Fans have been clamoring for the release of the grace-filled track ever since it was first shared on Instagram in October of 2021. Morgan Wallen is set to be released his highly anticipated song “Don’t Think Jesus” on Good Friday April 15 to commemorate the triumphant day. According to Wallen, the timing of the album’s release is appropriate because the song begins with him confessing that he is unworthy of salvation; however, he then speaks of the grace he has received, adding, “I don’t think Jesus did it that way.”

The release of “Don’t Think Jesus” was announced on TikTok late last night by Morgan Wallen, who used the brief caption “Good Friday” to announce the release.

“Livin’ The Dream,” a song by Van Wallen that speaks of the difficulties and temptations that come with being in the limelight, is reminiscent of the message of this song in some ways. With a twist, “Don’t Think Jesus” shares a message of God’s grace and forgiveness while also depicting a man who lives an unruly lifestyle, prompting onlookers to throw stones in his direction and say, “I don’t think Jesus did it that way.” The song is available on iTunes and Amazon. As the man continues down this path, the song builds in intensity, and he begins to hear his conscience say, “I don’t think Jesus did it this way,” the song progresses even further.

While approaching the chorus, Wallen expresses his thoughts on what he would say to Jesus in response to his actions and reckless lifestyle if he were in his place, stating that “If I were him, I’d say ‘To hell with you, ain’t no helping you.'” Please find someone else to give Heaven to, I’m telling you — I’d shame myself, I’d blame myself, and I’d make myself pay for my mistakes — Oh, but I don’t believe Jesus works in this manner.”

Despite the fact that it was not written by Wallen, his most recent track proves to be one of his most personal to date, proving the adage “Songs always find their way home.” Chase McGill, Jessi Alexander, and Mark Holman collaborated on the writing of “Don’t Think Jesus.”

“Don’t Think Jesus” Lyrics

“Don’t Think Jesus”

Boy gets a guitar and starts writing songs
About whiskey and women and getting too stoned
He got all three at the first show he played
Hometown says, “I don’t think Jesus done it that way”
Boy moves to city lives fast and goes hard
Starts chasing the devil through honky-tonk bars
Ignoring the voices in his head that say, “I don’t think Jesus done it this way”

If I was him I’d say, “To hell with you, ain’t no helping you
Find someone else to give Heaven to I’m telling you
I’d shame me, I blame me
I’d make me pay for my mistakes”
Oh, but I don’t think Jesus does it that way

Boy’s all alone got no one to turn to
It figures he’ll pray cause what else could he do
He said I wish you would’ve woke me up an easier way
But I don’t think Jesus does it that way

If I was him I’d say, “To hell with you, ain’t no helping you
Find someone else to give Heaven to I’m telling you
I’d shame me, I blame me
I’d make me pay for my mistakes”
Oh, but I don’t think Jesus does it that way

The world likes to rear back and throw a few stones
So boy wants to throw a few stones of his own
Lord knows I ain’t perfect, and it ain’t my place
Oh, and I don’t think Jesus done it that way
Are y’all sure that Jesus done it that way?
