A poem for young people telling of the miracle of our Lord Jesus Christ feeding the five thousand.
Jesus went up into a mountain one day
To sit with His friends and eat
Looking out He saw a great crowd of people
All wanting to join Him and meet
“How do you suppose we can feed them?”
The Lord asked Philip that day
But He already knew
Exactly what He would do
He just wanted to hear what His disciples would say
So Philip replied “We haven’t the money to buy bread for them all”
“It’s not enough but here’s a lad with loaves and fish” Andrew called
“Make them sit down on the grass” replied Jesus
“I have more than enough food for all that can feed us”
So the men sat down as Jesus gave thanks
For those five barley loaves and two small fish
And the Lord gave out the food to His friends
Then they gave to each man as much as each wished
Everyone ate up all that they could
Till all of the men were completely filled up
Jesus then told His men
“Collect all that’s leftover so nothing is lost”
So they gathered twelve baskets full, and ALL were aghast!
