Why Should the Father Bother?
Words and Music by Bob Hartman
on Washes Whiter Than by Petra
Copyright 1979 Dawn Treader Music

Intro: F Bb/F C/F Bb/F F Bb/F C/F Bb/F 

(Chorus)
F    Edim  Dm  C  Bb  Am  F     Bb             F    Bb/F C/F Bb/F
Why should the Father bother to call us his children?
F    Edim  Dm  C   Bb Am   F  Bb          C7
Why should the Spirit hear it when we pray?
F    Edim  Dm  C  Bb  Am  F     Bb     Am                      Dm C
Why should the Father bother to be concerned with all our needs?
F    Edim  Dm  C   Bb Am   Bb  C       F    Bb/F C/F Bb/F F Bb/F
It's all   because of what the Son has done

C/F Bb/F     Bb               F/A
Once we were lost out on the ocean
           C7            Bb
With no direction or devotion
F/A             Bb                 C7
Tossed about by every wind and wave
           Bb                  F/A
Now we are in the world, not of it
           C7              Dm   Dm/C
And we can surely rise above it
   Bb          Bb/A  Gm7   C7sus4        F Bb/F C/F Bb/F
Because the Lord has risen from the grave


(Chorus)

C/F Bb/F     Bb                    F/A
Once we were strangers from the promise
        C7                     Bb
We were doubters worse than Thomas
F/A             Bb                C7
Till the Spirit opened up our eyes
           Bb             F/A
Now he has offered us adoption
            C7             Dm   Dm/C
And we have taken up the option
   Bb        Bb/A Gm7  C7sus4   F Bb/F C/F Bb/F
To be his family      eternally


(Chorus)

F    Edim  Dm C    Bb Am   Bb  C       F    Bb/C C F
It's all   because of what the Son has done
