Who Do You Say?
Words and music © 2017 Deanna Witkowski/Tilapia Tunes/BMI

Some say that you were a teacher
whose words challenged all who would hear.
Others say you were deluded
and stirred up division and fear.

Some say that you were a healer
whose hands cured and offered life.
Now just as you asked your disciples one day,
now you ask of me:

Who do you say that I am?
Who do you say I am?

Some say that you were a prophet
whose actions were filled with love,
but now I am ready to answer what you now ask of me:

I say,

You are the way that leads to life;
you are the light of the world.
You are the truth that gives us hope;
you are God.

And now I am asking you, Jesus,
to tell me just who I am.
For as you once said to your disciples one day,
now you say to me:

You say,

“You are a rock on which I will build;
you are the salt of the earth.
You are my child, my precious one.
You are mine.”

I say,

You are the way that leads to life;
you are the light of the world.
You are the truth that gives us hope;
You are God,
you are God.
