Song – Can the Friends of the Bridegroom Fast?

This song puts together some of the main words about fasting from the lips of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Earlier version

Words are taken from Mark 2:19-20 and Matthew 6:16-18
Key: Em
Can the friends of the Bridegroom fast while the Bridegroom is with with them?
As long as they have the Bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.
But the days will come, when the bridegroom will be taken away from them,
And then they will fast in those days.

Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites,
with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces
that they may appear to men to be fasting.
Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.

But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face,
so that you do not appear to men to be fasting,
but to your Father who is in the secret place;
and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
