Lyrics : Who Is Your Neighbour
An expert of the Law one day came to Jesus and he asked
“Teacher, what must I do to get eternal life?”
Jesus said “what is written in the law, how does it read?”
The expert of the law replied, “that’s basic as can be.”
“Love the Lord your God, with all your heart, mind, soul and strength
Love your neighbor as yourself, is what the law decrees
Jesus said” you are correct, do this and you will live”
But then he asked “who is my neighbour” so Jesus said to him.
Who is your neighbour, look around and see
The lost and hurting people who are longing to be free
Will you make a difference, will you pay the price
One moment of compassion, can change somebody’s life...
Then Jesus told this story:
A certain man was traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho
When he fell among thieves who robbed him, and stripped him of his clothes
They beat him without mercy, half-dead they left him there
Drifting in and out of consciousness, would anybody care.
A little while later a Priest came walking by
But when he saw the man he passed by on the other side
Still later came a Levite, who also did the same
Passing by on the other side, ignoring the cries of pain
But then came a Samaritan, and when he saw the man
His heart was moved with pity, so he stopped to lend a hand
He bound his wounds then on his donkey took him to an inn
Where he paid to have him cared for till he was whole again.
When He finished Jesus said “now tell me if you can
Of these three which one was a neighbor to this man”
“The one who showed him mercy, who met him in his need”
Jesus said “go and do likewise, for in this is God’s love seen.”
