But Hey – Lyrics, MP3 and more

In this animated Bible song, we look at the story of the prodigal son, from the perspective of the older brother. He is not really happy to see his younger brother coming back home. Their father however shows us a peek into the heart of God. He never stopped loving his prodigal son like God never stopped loving us through all our sinfull life.

Lyrics

I’m the good son, working hard in the fields
Watching the sun rise, and the crops yield
But today, something’s different, I hear a sound
It’s music and laughter, and it’s all around.
I walk towards the noise, wondering what it could be?
And there I see a party, and my brother is here.
He wasted all his money, disgraced our family
Has everybody lost their mind, well, don’t count on me!

But Hey!
He is back!
With his tail between his legs
So don’t be upset!
But Hey!
He’s alive!
Your brother went astray
But now he’s back!
What about you?

He was young, he was restless, and he wanted more
So, he asked for his share and he walked out the door.
He wasted all his money, on all his wild dreams
Parties and pleasure, and all the wrong things.
Father’s heart shattered as he watched him depart,
His love never faded; it beat in his heart.
He hit rock bottom and he was in need,
Working as a swineherd, with nothing to eat.

But Hey!
He is back!
With his tail between his legs
So don’t be upset!
But Hey!
He’s alive!
Your brother went astray
But now he’s back!
What about you?

I know I’m supposed to love him, like a brother should
But it’s hard when all I see is that he’s no good
I’m trying to forgive and put my envy to rest
But it’s a battle, can I pass this test?
I walk towards the noise, wondering what it could be
And there I see a party, and my brother is here.
In His love, our Father wants me to see
That we’re all a prodigal that needs to be free.

But Hey!
He is back!
With his tail between his legs
So don’t be upset!
But Hey!
He’s alive!
Your brother went astray
But now he’s back!
What about you?

We all have an elder brother inside,
Judging and comparing, he’s never satisfied!
But our Father’s love is waiting for us,
To come with repentance, receive His forgiveness
Through grace!

But Hey!
He is back!
With his tail between his legs
So don’t be upset!
But Hey!
He’s alive!
Your brother went astray
But now he’s back…

But Hey!
He is back!
With his tail between his legs
So don’t be upset!
But Hey!
He’s alive!
Your brother went astray
But now he’s back!
What about you?
