Prince, who died a year ago this week, was a lifelong Christian, raised as a Seventh-day Adventist and later converting to Jehovah's Witnesses. Throughout his almost 40 years of music, he frequently philosophized, theologized and just plain preached in his songs. Here is a sample of Prince's more religious lyrics.
'I Would Die 4 U'
(From the album "Purple Rain," 1984)
This song was a hit as a love song between a man and a woman, but at points, Prince seems to be playing the role of Jesus:
I'm not a woman
I'm not a man
