[Mary said to Jesus], “Son, why have you done this to us? Your father and I have been looking for you with great anxiety.” And he said to them, “Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?” (Lk 2:48-49).

We are lost in this fearful world;
	We lost Jesus Christ.
He didn’t leave us to ourselves;
	We left the Shepherd.

We thought He was too slow,
	To come to our need.
We thought He was too far, 
	To hear our sighing.

We thought He was too strict, 
	To give us elbow room.
We thought He was too tight, 
	To share with us some wealth.

Jesus, where are you?
	I heard, “In my Father’s House.”
We lost the Way,
We lost the Truth,
We lost the Life.
	We must find Jesus. VSS
