Hymn Lyrics for John 7

Who Was This Who Did These Signs?

To the tune: CWM RHONDDA. Based on John 7. Words: William Weber, 2011.

v. 1
Hostile were the Jews ’gainst Jesus,
breaking Sabbath was His crime.
Jesus’ brothers unbelieving,
with the world they took their side.
Crowds were torn about His person,
who was this who did these signs?
who was this who did these signs?

v. 2
Jesus came unto the temple,
teaching them the truth of God.
Speaking not for His own honor,
but the Father’s praise, applause.
Jesus, Sent-One of the Father,
He’s the Christ, the Son of God.
He’s the Christ, the Son of God.

v. 3
In the trial of the ages,
is this man the Lord and Christ?
Is this Jesus a deceiver
or the Son of God and Christ?
O believe Christ’s witness, truthful,
side with Him, receive true life,
side with Him, receive true life.

v. 4
Christ replaces the true temple,
Spirit flowing out from Him.
Raised to life in triune glory,
Spirit gives to dwell within.
Blessed we are to be in Jesus,
dead and buried, raised with Him,
dead and buried, raised with Him.

v. 5
Son of God sent from the Father,
to the Father He returned.
Vindicated by His rising,
rule, authority He earned.
He’s your Judge, the King in glory,
will you trust or will you spurn?
will you trust or will you spurn?
