This hymn focusses on the Wedding at Cana in Galilee (John 2: 1 – 11)
where Jesus turned water into wine.
1 No magic, but a simple need
was met when Jesus joined a feast,
a wedding was well underway
until the wine ran low, then ceased.
2 While Jesus never looked for fame
his mother called him to her side
to ask that he would help them out,
assuming grace would now provide.
3 He wasn't such an easy touch
he didn't want to do her will,
it seemed he wasn't ready yet.
Was this a misuse of his skill?
4 Great jars of water were at hand.
Was this a miracle or sign?
He simply told the stewards to draw.
This water now had turned to wine
5 The wedding feast was now replete,
and God surprises people still,
through word or miracle or sign
God still amazes, always will.
