Because He Paid the Price

They Don't Know

The great and the small; the great and the small
Thatís all itís really about, at all
The predator and the prey
The privileged and the powerless
Belligerence and kindness
Beauty and ugliness
ÖAnd all of it, just emptiness

No bread to the wise; no bread to the wise
No favor to men of ability
"Hard work pays" just a fallacy
Controlling your own destiny...
Hah! Only God can see
In the end, what will be
ÖAnd certainly, no one else

Why caní't they see the value in what I do?
Are You teaching me to trust in You?
They donít know
No, they donít know
...Do You?
The great and the small; the great and the small
They all need Jesus, that'ís all
Both the predator and the prey...
This is the answer, if you need one
When all is said and done
They need to know the One
...Who loves them

You showed the way; You showed the way
When the angry things You did not say
Oh, how can I be like You?
You let them misunderstand and hate
You entrusted Your precious life, your fate
To the One Whoí's never made a mistake
Ö...Not even one
Why can'ít they see the value in what I do?
All that'ís left to do is trust in You
They don'ít know
No, they donít know
But, You do!
Yes, You do!

...the race is not to the swift and the battle is not to the warriors, and neither is bread to the wise nor wealth to the discerning nor favor to men of ability...
Ecclesiates 9:11

...not from the east, nor from the west, nor from the desert comes exaltation; but God is the Judge; He puts down one and exhalts the other.
Psalm 75:6-7

...and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously.
I Peter 2:23
