The Main Event

The Main Event

Verse 1

Caesar built an empire

Ruled from shore to shore

Now he’s mostly remembered

For when a baby was born

He wanted everyone counted

So everybody went

He was the main attraction

But even he missed the main event

Verse 2

Later on at the temple

Time for the offering came

The coffers rang with the money

The wealthy people gave

Jesus said see that woman

She gave her last two cents

Y’all were the main attraction

But she was the main event

Chorus

So it makes me wonder what goes missing in our lives

What matters most so often goes unrecognized

Verse 3

Crowds at the crucifixion

All the disciples fled

Three days found them hiding underneath their beds

The women went to the graveyard

Came back and told the men

You saw the main attraction

But you all missed the main event

Chorus

Bridge

When Jesus said seek the kingdom

Maybe what He meant

Is this world’s main attractions

Are hardly ever, almost never, the main event

The main event
