Thats Not What a Kiss is For

Artist: Michael Card
Song Title: Why

Why did it have to be a friend
Who chose to betray the Lord
Why did he use a kiss to show them
That's not what a kiss is for

Only a friend can betray a friend
A stranger has nothing to gain
And only a friend comes close enough
To ever cause so much pain

And why did there have to be thorny
Crown pressed upon His head
It should have been the royal one
Made of jewels and gold instead

It had to be a crown of thorns
Because in this life that we live
For all who seek to love
A thorn is all the world has to give

And why did it have to be
A heavy cross He was made to bare
And why did they nail His feet and hands
His love would have held Him there

It was a cross for on a cross
A thief was supposed to pay
And Jesus had come into the world
To steal every heart away

Yes, Jesus had come into the world
To steal every heart away


One of my favorite songs by Michael Card....here is the youtube link if you would like to hear it...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFGXW3kJ3as

    It certainly is a painful reality, at times, when we don't see this sort of thing coming. Kudos to you for posting this.

    Yes....every single line of this song is full of meaning...the tune is haunting....I'd give it a listen....Notice I chose my own title for the piece...betrayal should never be what a kiss is for!
