How Do You Feed Five Thousand?


© 2014 John Paul Taylor Jr.

They came there to see Jesus
They heard of miracles he’d done
How He could heal the sick and broken
This man who was God’s son
They came there by the thousands
They came from near and far
And after He healed them, and taught them
About the Kingdom of God

(They all wondered)
How do you feed five thousand?
What can we possibly do?
With just a few loaves of bread
And two small fish
There’ll never be enough food
How do you feed five thousand?
How can we feed them all?
There are so many of them
And so little to share
Jesus, tell us what to do

He knew before they asked him
There was a miracle to come
He gave thanks to God his Father
Yes, He was God’s own Son
Then He broke the bread and gave it
To each and every one
And after they all had eaten
It was clear what He had done

(He was the answer to)
How do you feed five thousand?
What could they possibly do?                      
With just a few loaves of bread
And two small fish
There’d never have been enough food
How did He feed five thousand?
How did He feed them all?
There were so many of them
And so little to share
But Jesus, knew what He could do

Jesus, knew what He could do
