Crowds followed Yesu

Crowds followed Yesu to the hills

Author: Tom Colvin
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Crowds followed Yesu to the hills,
his deeds they did recall.
At evening Yesu asked his friends,
"How can we feed them all?"

2 "These loaves and fish are all we have,
enough for just a few.
So send them off to beg or buy,
there's nothing we can do."

3 Bur Yesu so arranged the crowds
that everyone took part.
He shared with them God's way of love
and opened every heart.

4 By miracle there was enough,
the food for all was there,
when Yesu bound them all as one,
and taught them how to share.

5 We're all to blame that many starve
and more are left to die.
In Christ we're called to heal the world
and hungry satisfy.

6 With Yesu's lead, we'll learn to share,
and build our world anew.
Its wealth and food will be for all,
and not or just a few.
