Performed by the Doobie Brothers in HD with stunning sound quality.

This is a gospel song written by Arthur Reynolds and first recorded by Reynold's own group, The Art Reynolds Singers, on their 1966 album, "Tellin' It Like It Is." The song's title makes use of the American slang term "all-right", which during the 1960s was used to describe something that was considered cool or very good.

The song was later recorded by The Doobie Brothers, who included it on their 1972 album, Toulouse Street, which - together with "Listen to the Music" - brought the band their breakthrough success.

The Doobie Brothers' version of "Jesus Is Just Alright" was one of a number of religiously themed songs to reach the U.S. charts during 1972 and 1973, along with "Morning Has Broken" by Cat Stevens, "Jubilation" by Paul Anka, "Speak to the Sky" by Rick Springfield, "Jesus Was a Capricorn" by Kris Kristofferson, and "I Knew Jesus (Before He Was a Star)" by Glen Campbell. Lyrics follow:

Jesus is just alright with me, Jesus is just alright, oh yeah
Jesus is just alright with me, Jesus is just alright.

I don't care what they may say, I don't care what they may do
I don't care what they may say, Jesus is just alright, oh yeah
Jesus is just alright.

Jesus is just alright with me, Jesus is just alright, oh yeah
Jesus is just alright with me, Jesus is just alright.

I don't care what they may know, I don't care where they may go
I don't care what they may know, Jesus is just alright, oh yeah.

Jesus, He's my friend, Jesus, He's my friend
He took me by the hand, led me far from this land
Jesus, He's my friend.

Jesus is just alright with me, Jesus is just alright, oh yeah
Jesus is just alright with me, Jesus is just alright.

I don't care what they may say, I don't care what they may do
I don't care what they may say, Jesus is just alright, oh yeah.
