why?

|-why? by michael card-|


Why did it have to be a friend
Who chose to betray the Lord

Why did he use a kiss to show them
That's not what a kiss is for

Only a friend can betray a friend
A stranger has nothing to gain

And only a friend comes close enough
To ever cause so much pain

And why did there have to be thorny
Crown pressed upon His head

It should have been the royal one
Made of jewels and gold instead

It had to be a crown of thorns
Because in this life that we live

For all who seek to love
A thorn is all the world has to give

And why did it have to be
A heavy cross He was made to bare

And why did they nail His feet and hands
when His love would have held Him there


It was a cross for on a cross
A thief was supposed to pay

And Jesus had come into the world
To steal every heart away

Yes, Jesus had come into the world
To steal every heart away
