In Tune:

No Ordinary Man

Words and Music by Janice Kapp Perry

    Jesus was no ordinary man.

    But there were some who did not understand.

    They saw him working miracles,

    but some were still deceived.

    Why did they not believe?

    When with few loaves and fishes

    the multitude were fed;

    when he showed them his pow’r to heal,

    and even raised the dead;

    when he walked upon the water

    and he calmed the raging sea,

    why did they not believe?

    Jesus was no ordinary man.

    But there were some who did not understand.

    They saw him working miracles,

    but some were still deceived.

    Why did they not believe?

    When his faith filled the fish-nets,

    gave sight unto the blind;

    when they saw at his bidding

    even water turned to wine;

    when he offered all he had to them

    if they would but receive,

    why did they not believe?

    Jesus was no ordinary man.

    The pow’r to bless and heal was in his hands.

    They saw him cleanse the leper,

    they saw him heal the lame;

    they must have sensed divinity

    and known from whence he came,

    But understanding not his cause,

    they crucified the Son of God,

    And even then they did not understand

    that Jesus was no ordinary man.
