Where is our son?
A journey long ahead.
And now this interruption!

Where is our son?
We travel back to Zion.
We search both high and low,

Where is our son?
Our hearts about to break,
His whereabouts a mystery.

Where is our son?
From heav’n he came,
A myst’ry deep inside us,

Where is our son?
Among the rabbis.
About the Father’s business.

Making myst’ry plain,
God come to live with us!
In him, God’s love, God’s light.
