Just Because

Why do angels in the sky
Sing to shepherds in the night?
Why do heavenly hosts proclaim
Joyous news where there’s no fame?
Why does God so love to choose
The lowly here on earth to use?

Just because He wants to share.
Just because we’re in His care.
Just because He loves.

Why do wise men cross the earth
To find a child of simple birth?
Why bring gifts fit for a king
When there’s no one noticing?
Why is God so often prone
To turn our thinking upside down?

Just because He wants to share.
Just because we’re in His care.
Just because He loves.

Why did He choose to come this way?
Why was He often turned away?
Why a child without a home?
Why a king without a throne?
Why a manger for a bed?
Why no crown upon His head?

Just because He wants to share.
Just because we’re in His care.
Just because He loves.
