Why Granny Why?
But, why granny why, why did Jesus die?
by Frances Jaffray
He died to save the world my dear.
But granny that's not very clear
To save the world from sin you say,
But bad things happen every day.
Killings, fighting, men at war.
Was that what Jesus died for?
He died so that the world might live
His dying wish, "Forgive, forgive."
That's not always an easy word to say,
never an easy role to play.
But we must try and live in peace.
Goodwill to men, all wars must cease.
Else Jesus hanging, wracked with pain,
Will have lived and died in vain,
And generations on, they still will cry,
Why granny, why, why did he die?
