Jesus In The Temple With The Doctors Wis
Jesus in the temple, with the doctors wise,
Asking wondrous questions, giving deep replies;
When his parents found him, seeking night and day,
Found him in the temple, what did Jesus say?
At the well of Jacob, resting by its brink,
Bidding the Samaritan give to him to drink;
When she asked of Jesus where men ought to pray,
At the well of Jacob, what did Jesus say?
On the sea of Galilee, when the storm was high,
Save us, Lord! we perish! his disciples cry;
While they marvel greatly, as the winds obey,
On the sea of Galilee, what did Jesus say?
Coming into Bethany, meeting, full of gloom,
Martha, mourning Lazarus, lying in the tomb-
Of the Resurrection, and the last Great Day,
Coming into Bethany, what did Jesus say?
Weeping o’er Jerusalem, city of the King,
Whom he would have gathered ‘neath his loving wing
Mourning for her children, going far astray,
Weeping o’er Jerusalem, what did Jesus say?
From that cross of sorrow, ere his soul went up,
As he drank the fullness of the bitter cup;
Looking on his enemies, in their dark array,
From that cross of sorrow, what did Jesus say?
On the hills of heaven, in the world above,
Where his faithful children share his wondrous love;
All their sins forgiven, in that blessed day,
On the hills of heaven, what will Jesus say?
Come, ye blessed of my Father,
Inherit the kingdom prepared for you,
From the foundation of the world,
From the foundation of the world. Amen.
