For the love of man
Who could understand
What goes on
What is right
And what is wrong
Why the angels cry
And the heaven's sigh
When a child is born to live
But not like you and I.

Let the angels ring the bells
In the holy hall
May they hear the voice
That calls to them
For the love of man
Who will understand
It's alright
I know it's alright.

Down the dusty road
To the forest church
Let wander there
Let me wonder why
On the ocean wave
In the billowing sky
Let wander there
Let me wonder why.

Let the angels ring the bells
In the holy hall
Let them hear
The voice that calls.
For the love of man
Who will understand
It's alright
But I wonder why.

I wonder why.
I wonder why.
I wonder why.
I wonder why.
