WHY, JESUS?

Lyric

1. Why did you feed them, Jesus?
Why did you give them bread?
Did you do it to prove your Kingship
or to show God was not dead?
Why did you feed them, Jesus?
Why did you give them bread?

I fed them when they were hungry
because I love them so.
I fed and I feed their hunger.
I’ve been hungry myself, you know.

2. Why did you heal them, Jesus?
Why did you ease their pain?
Did you come as the Great Physician?
to brighten life’s sad refrain?
Why did you heal them, Jesus?
Why did you ease their pain?

I healed their broken bodies
because I loved them so.
I am the Great Physician!
And I was broken myself, you know.

3. Why do you love us, Jesus?
We who are hungry and lame?
We eat your bread and demand your touch,
then leave you to die in shame.
Why do you love us, Jesus?
We who are hungry and lame?

I love you because I have made you.
My touch can make you whole.
I love you because it’s my nature
and I, too, have been loved, you know!
