Why Trouble The Master?

Jairus daughter lay dying, but Jesus was near.
Jairus sought out the Lord for his loved one so dear.
But before the journey ended his daughter had died;
the crowd now grew restless, and someone soon cried,
"Why trouble the master? Your daughter is gone.
There is no more hope here, for she has passed on.
~
Why trouble the Master? The Lord alone heals!
Why trouble the Master? He brings hope and new zeal!
Why trouble the Master? His love never fails!
Why trouble the master? Because Jesus cares!
~
Why trouble the master, the Savious of men?
When it seems all is lost, marred and scarred by sin,
Jesus offers new beginnings, forgiveness and grace.
Jesus loves you so much, He died in your place.
A fountain for cleansing and power from on high;
a reason to live; hear the Master's cry.
~
Why trouble the Master? The Lord alone heals!
Why trouble the Master? He brings hope and new zeal!
Why trouble the Master? His love never fails!
Why trouble the master? Because Jesus cares!
~
Why trouble the Master, the healer of men?
He alone can heal, bring to life again.
Just reach out now in faith and He'll make you whole.
Oh the Master will quench the thirst in your soul.
He mends broken hearts, restores broken homes.
With Jesus nearby you are never alone.
~
Why trouble the Master? The Lord alone heals!
Why trouble the Master? He brings hope and new zeal!
Why trouble the Master? His love never fails!
Why trouble the master? Because Jesus cares!
~
Why trouble the Master, creator of all?
Because he loves you; listen to his call.
Jesus knows all things and he is still in control.
He is always at work, guarding your soul.
He sets captives free from their darkness and strife.
Jesus calms every storm, and brings peace in your life.
~
Why trouble the Master? The Lord alone heals!
Why trouble the Master? He brings hope and new zeal!
Why trouble the Master? His love never fails!
Why trouble the master? Because Jesus cares!
~
When you trouble the Master the whole world stops and stares!

Mark 5:22-24 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet, And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live. And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.


Mark 5:35-42 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further? As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly. And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying. And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.
This song came about when Jerry Bouey sent me a poem he had written, and asked if I could put it to music for him.  I made a few changes for the lyric to flow from verse to verse, and I used the final stanza to create a chorus, but I stayed as closely as possible to the original. To read Bro. Jerry's original lyric, go to Why Trouble the Master?
