This text focuses on Jesus’ healing ministry. The first two stanzas speak of his power exercised on behalf of the lame, the leper, the blind, the outcast, the poor, and so on. In the third stanza we ask Jesus to empower us to follow his example of humility and compassion.
Sing! A New Creation
This song reflects the deep compassion of the ministry of Christ; similarly, Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 24 testifies that “in his baptism and temptations, teaching and miracles, battles with demons and friendships with sinners, Jesus lived a full and righteous human life before us.”
