9429. Jesus Passed Through Jericho

1 Jesus passed thro’ Jericho,
As to the cross He went;
To the sinful and the lost
The Son of God was sent;
All the suffering ones of earth,
The blind, the halt, the lame,
Called His kind compassion forth,
For unto them He came.

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

2 Jesus passed thro’ Jericho;
With joy the blind man heard;
Heeding not the world’s reproach,
He begged 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 passed 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]
