Why aren't they celebrating

Why aren’t they celebrating?

Why do they speak of Jesus
As sad, and miserable?
Why do they only see the cross?
And nothing else at all
He would have been a happy soul
He knew the song of life
Even though they made him suffer
And put him through such strife.

A man who really knows the truth
He can’t be miserable
He can only be in love with life
He can only love it all
The good things and the bad things
Cause he’ll know who he is
He’ll celebrate this life he lives
He’ll live a life of bliss.

Why do they seem so miserable?
These one’s that do believe
Why aren’t they dancing, celebrating?
Why do they seem to grieve?
Why do they fear their God of love?
It seems so strange to me
If Heaven, they are going to
Then these people should be happy.

    Thank you Roger, I was born to a religious family and they never seemed happy to me. Thank you for your comments, my friend...peter
