My Father's Business

SONG LYRICS

A yearly tri his family makes to attend a passover feast
So many kin walking for days on the road to Jerusalem they take
And then one year when Jesus is twelve on the trip back to their home
Through confusion or fate they make a mistake and Jesus is left behind

At the end of the first long travel day throughout the clan they search
Oh could it be was he left behind for their child could not be found
A frantic trip back to town they search for three long days
Amazing a group of religious teachers in the temple Jesus is found

Mary amazed and relieved asks why has thou done this
Your father and I for many long days have sought in sorrow and grief
They did not understand him and his simple reply
Why is it that you search for me? For about my Father’s business
(Pause)
You should have known that I would be.
