Representative Text

1 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?

2 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?

3 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?

4 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?

5 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?

6 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?

7 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?

Chorus:
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.
