I bore a king! I bore a king!
I knew the honey, now the sting is all I know.
Where did the honey go?

That joyful day at Cana when you turned water into wine...
That was the first time I saw the honey flow.
Somehow I knew this was something you could do.

And then I heard such wonders,
How you cleansed the wretched leper,
And made the blind eye see.
Your holy touch had raised the dead!

Yet I felt a coming dread
As news of these wonders were spread.
You would be sought by the Pharisees,
Who'd claim your words were blasphemy.

I came to tell you of my fear,
But when they told you I was near,
You said, "This is not my mother?
My mother and my brothers are all who do God's will."

I wonder if you knew the hurt?
I tried hard not to show it.
Son, I am your mother still.
Where did the honey go?

What is this cross? How can it be?
Son, tell them what they want to hear,
Or give the cross to me!
I see you struggle with each blow!

Oh, why must God exact such woe?!
Where did the honey go?
Where did the honey go?
