    Jesus is with his team
    He speaks privately with them
    To tell them he will die
    But will rise again
    This is God’s way
    They do not understand
    They want him to live!
    They want him to succeed!
    They want to share his success!
    They hope to be big men!
    But Jesus is not like that
    He welcomes a small child
    God wants people like this
    The team has sent people away
    They must stop doing that
    All must be welcomed
    If they are willing to serve God
    We must not be proud
    We must not ignore others
    Jesus lived that way
    We must trust and follow him
