Why Trouble the Master

Previously recorded by Ivan Parker.

Written by Daryl Williams and Jeff Steele

Verse 1

JAIRUS WAS STANDING

NEAR JESUS ONE DAY

BACK HOME HIS DAUGHTER

WAS SLIPPING AWAY

THEN ONE OF HIS SERVANTS

CAME TO HIM AND SAID

THERE’S NO NEED TO ASK HIM

YOUR DAUGHTER IS DEAD

 

Chorus

WHY TROUBLE THE MASTER

WHEN ALL HOPE IS PAST

WHY TROUBLE THE MASTER

WHY EVEN ASK

WELL, I’VE SEEN COMPASSION

IN HIS LOVING EYES

AND THAT’S WHY I TROUBLE THE MASTER

‘CAUSE I KNOW HE MAKES DEAD THINGS RISE

 

Verse 2

IF YOU’VE BEEN PRAYING

FOR ONE WHO IS LOST

AND YOU’VE NEVER SEEN THEM

LOOK UP TO THE CROSS

YEARS MAY BE PASSING

AND DOUBT PRESSES IN

ASKING THIS QUESTION

AGAIN AND AGAIN
