I know this song long time ago; during Sabah Youth Day 2 (Ranau), 2008.
During that time, I was touched, burst into tears and felt blessed!

Thus, I sang this song in Church today!
Had 3 days practice for it since my pianist didn't know much this song.
But, I'm glad because she learnt it very fast!

We rode into town the other day,
Just me and my daddy.
He said I’d finally reached that age
And I could ride next to him on a horse
That of course was not quite as wide

We heard a crowd of people shouting,
And so we stopped to find out why.
There was that man that my dad said he loved
But today there was fear in his eyes.

So I said, “Daddy why are they screaming?
Why are the faces of some of them beaming?
Why is he dressed in that bright purple robe?
I’ll bet that crown hurts him more than he shows.
Daddy, please, can’t you do something?
He looks as though he’s gonna cry.
You said he was stronger than all of those guys.
Daddy please tell me why,
Why does everyone want him to die?”

Later that day the sky grew cloudy
And Daddy said I should go inside.
Somehow he knew things could get stormy.
Boy, was he right! But I could not keep from wonderin’
If there was something he had to hide
So after he left I had to find out.
I was not afraid of getting lost.
So I followed the crowds to a hill where I knew men
had been killed,
And I heard a voice call from the cross

And he said, “Father why are they screaming?
Why are the faces of some of them beaming?
Why are they casting their lots for my robe?
This crown of thorns hurts me more than it shows.
Father, please, can’t You do something?
I know that You must hear my cry.
I thought I could handle a cross of this size.
Father remind me why, why does everyone want me to die
Oh, when will I understand why?

My precious Son, I hear them screaming,
and I’m watching the face of the enemy beaming.
But soon I will clothe You in robes of my own.
Jesus, this hurts Me much more than You know.
But this dark hour I must do  nothing
Though I’ve heard Your unbearable cry.
The pow’r in Your blood destroys all of the lies.
Soon You’ll see past their unmerciful eyes.
Look there below, see the child
Trembling by her father’s side.
Now I can tell You why,
She is why You must die.

P/S: This song is dedicated to Pastor Koko for all the inspiration, words of wisdom, and for helping me to understand 'why', even though we spent such a very short time serving in Korin Church. God bless your journey! And thanks to my roommate (Akmal) for sacrificing his precious morning sleep just to send me to Church by his bike today.
