141. Jesus Passed Through Jericho

1 Jesus pass’d thro’ Jericho, as to the cross He went;
To the sinful and the lost the Son of God was sent;
All the suff’ring ones of earth, the blind, the halt and lame,
Called His kind compassion forth, for unto them He came.

Saviour, I believe;
Let me now my sight receive;
Christ of Jericho,
Let me Thy salvation know.

2 Jesus pass’d thro’ Jericho; with joy the blind man heard;
Heeding not the world’s reproach, he begg’d a healing word;
This his opportunity; for him salvation’s day;
“Lord, I would receive my sight; have mercy, now, I pray.” [Refrain]

3 Jesus pass’d thro’ Jericho, and still He passeth by;
Would you from your sin be free? to Him lift up your cry;
Call to Him in humble faith; He cometh now this way!
Lo, the Christ of Jericho will save your soul today. [Refrain]
