A Stick, A Carrot & String - text
Our Lord was born to a manger bed
That all whose wells run dry could drink of his supply
So grateful for His coming here
Come with news of grace, come to take my place
"Child, in thirty-some-odd years
You'll ride someone who looks like me untriumphantly"
He'll make right what man made wrong
Bringing low the hills that the valleys might be filled
"Well, aren't they lovely words we sing?"
The tiny baby laid there without saying anything
With the crooked teeth and a matted coat
Weary eyes and worn, chipped and twisted horns
With the cows and the hens in the rambouillet
But for now I'll keep away, I've got nothing smart to say
"When the rain picks up and the sun goes down
Sinners come inside, with no money come and buy"
Requires our lowly, lovely King
Come now empty-handed, you don't need anything
With the sneaking snake in the garden grass
Deep cried out to deep, the disciples fast asleep
If you're willing that this cup might pass
We could find our way back home, maybe start a family all our own
Not My will, but Yours be done
What else here to do? What else me but You?
A stick, a carrot and a string
Was crushed beneath the foot of Your not wanting anything
