O We Of Little Faith

When Jesus walked upon the earth,
So many disbelieved.
Despite His wondrous miracles,
They thought that He deceived.

They crowned Him with some plaited thorns,
Then nailed Him to a tree,
Because it was His Father's plan
He'd die for you and me.

They pierced His side when He was dead
And laid Him in a tomb,
But little did those people know
He'd be arising soon.

On Sunday morn the women came
With ointments to His grave;
To their surprise and wonderment,
The stone was rolled away!

"He is not here, He is alive!"
They heard the angels say,
"Just like He said in Galilee --
He's risen on this day!"

When Jesus walked again in flesh,
The faithless loudly cried,
"We won't believe that it is He
Until we've touched His side!"

And still today in disbelief
So many will not see
He died and rose so everyone
Can live eternally.
