Which One?

 

Once there was a man who was robbed and beaten

On the road to Jericho

A priest came by in a hurry and thought,

“I should help, but I really must go.”

Along came a Samaritan who saw the beaten man

And was moved with pity

So, he picked him up and took him to be cared for

At an inn in the closest city

 

And Jesus asked, “Which one?

Which one?

Which one was the neighbor?

Which one?

Which one?

Which one was the neighbor?”

 

The road to Jericho was a dangerous one.

This was widely known

If you could, it would be good if you didn't have to

Go it alone

So when a Levite passed the beaten man,

He feared the thieves were still near

But the Samaritan risked his safety

And overcame his fear

 

Chorus

 

Jesus gave this Great Commandment

It may be the greatest challenge

Love your neighbor as you love yourself

 

And Jesus asks, “Which one?

Which one?

Which one will be the neighbor?

Which one?

Which one?

Which one will be the neighbor?”
