When I just wanna fight back

Jesus

When I just wanna fight back, lash out, push back,
kick butt, punch or smack
I think of You

When I just wanna call out, punch up, justify myself
I think of You

Did you just wanna fight back, lash out, push back,
kick butt, punch or smack
And fight for You?

You could have burned up, wiped out,
swallowed up the lot who spat on You
You could have shriveled up, smashed up,
disintegrated those who hassled You.

In fact, You could have cast off, soared off, stepped back,
Got off the track, got off the cross, stayed alive
Wrote us off, left us to die, made us all pay

You could have

You should have

You didn’t

So I won’t justify myself
think the worst,
But try to love
Like You

When life is unfair, no one cares,
it’s all too hard
I’ll think of You

To be like You.

When I just wanna fight back

Artist's Description

Had a bad day with a particular horrible student and went to bed angry. How did Jesus cope with the abuse and rejection he copped, surely there must have been times when he wanted to fight back…
