Who could've known that Jesus would become a rap star?
Suppose at midnight you go to a friend
Ask of him three loaves of bread to lend
For you say a friend has come over your house
And you have nothing to eat, not even a mouse
But the one inside says, “Don't bother me.
The door is locked and I can't find my key.
I can't get up, we're all in bed
I'm not going to give you any bread.”
But as he continued to plead more and more
I tell you the man will open the door.
Not because he was his friend
But just to make his pleading end
So I say: Ask and it will be given to you
And if you seek, you'll find what is true
Knock and you'll suddenly find you're inside
Just as the man did because he had tried
Which of you fathers, if your son has a wish,
Will give him a snake if he asks for a fish?
Or give him a scorpion if he asks for an egg?
Is that what you'd give if your son did beg?
If you then, being evil, know how to give
Good gifts to your children to help them live
How much more will God make it his task
To give his Spirit to those who ask!
