I've wondered why
All the people laughed and then they cried
I've wondered why
That the mention of your name's decried
People so lost in their sin
Don't know where they should begin
Searching for truth and a way
Many seemed to turn away

I've pondered why
When the truths revealed they turn to lies
I've pondered why
Though they turn away you hear their cries
Spirit moving in their lives
How they seemed to try and hide
Closing their hearts to the truth
Always what's said they refute

I've conquered why
Why so many hear and still they die
I've conquered why
Why the saviour's mercy they deny
Searching for an easy way
Rebuking God's guide this day
They just won't accept their blame
All things stand out to their shame

written as a song in 1980
