"Jesus Walks" is a song by American hip hop recording artist Kanye West. It was released on May 25, 2004 as the fourth single from his debut album, The College Dropout. The song contains a sample of "Walk with Me" as performed by the ARC Choir. "Jesus Walks" was acclaimed by music critics, who praised its compelling sonic atmosphere and boldness in its open embrace of faith. It was met by widespread commercial recognition, peaking at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and becoming West's fourth consecutive top twenty hit in the United States. The song includes the infamous line "even the scrippers".

The single was accompanied by three separate music videos, each of which visually interpreted a portion of its multifaceted context in different ways. "Jesus Walks" continues to be a crowd favorite and stands as one of the most-performed songs by West, who has included it within all of his headlining tours. At the 47th Grammy Awards, "Jesus Walks" was awarded the Grammy for Best Rap Song.

Rolling Stone named the song No. 19 on their list of 100 Best Songs of the 2000s.

The song was named the 6th best song of 2004 on Village Voice's Pazz & Jop critics poll. In October 2011, NME placed it at No. 69 on its list "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years". The song was listed at No. 123 on Pitchfork Media's 500 songs of the 2000s. It was placed at No. 273 on Rolling Stone's list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time".
