Five Loaves And Two Fishes (lyric)

Five Loaves And Two Fishes

[by: Corrinne May]

A little boy of thirteen was on his way to school

He heard a crowd of people laughing and he went to take a look

Thousands were listening to the stories of one man

He spoke with such wisdom, even the kids could understand

The hours passed so quickly, the day turned to night

Everyone was hungry but there was no food in sight

The boy looked in his lunchbox at the little that he had

He wasn’t sure what good it’d do, there were thousands to be fed

But he saw the twinkling eyes of Jesus

The kindness in His smile

And the boy cried out

With the trust of a child

he said:

“Take my five loaves and two fishes

Do with it as You will

I surrender

Take my fears and my inhibitions

All my burdens, my ambitions

You can use it all to feed them all”

I often think about that boy when I’m feeling small

And I worry that the work I do means nothing at all

But every single tear I cry is a diamond in His hands

And every door that slams in my face, I will offer up in prayer

So I’ll give You every breath that I have

Oh Lord, You can work miracles

All that You need is my “Amen”

So take my five loaves and two fishes

Do with it as You will

I surrender

Take my fears and my inhibitions

All my burdens, my ambitions

You can use it all

I hope it’s not too small

I trust in You

I trust in You

So take my five loaves and two fishes

Do with it as You will

I surrender

Take my fears and my inhibitions

All my burdens, my ambitions

You can use it all

No gift is too small

Mata saya berkaca-kaca ketika pertama kali mendengar lagu ini..

Karena isinya benar-benar menguatkan saya. Jujur saja, saya memang selalu merasa “the work I do means nothing at all”.

Lagu ini membuat saya mengerti bahwa Tuhan perduli pada saya.

Semoga lagu ini juga bisa membuat anda dikuatkan…

Btw, sebenarnya ada sebuah ketidaksesuaian dengan ayat Alkitab pada judul lagu ini. Yaitu, di Alkitab fish dlm bentuk plural tetap fish, bukan fishes (John 6:9, Luke 9:16, Mark 6:41, Matthew 14:17). Bukan berarti Alkitab salah atau Corrinne salah, tetapi memang bentuk plural fish ada yang fishes dan fish di kamus-kamus yang berbeda (seperti plural cactus= ada yang cacti dan ada yang cactuses).
