Jesus, Have Mercy on Me!

Representative Text

1 A beggar blind sat by the way,
the multitude passed by;
He quickly asked them what it meant,
And loud he raised his cry.

Chorus:
Jesus, have mercy on me!
Jesus, have mercy on me!
Cry to Him, sinner, While mercy is near,
Jesus, have mercy on me!

2 "Jesus! have mercy now on me!"
They sought to still his cry;
He heeded not, but cried the more,
Lest Jesus should pass by. [Chorus]

3 Jesus commanded him come near;
"What wilt thou have?" He said;
"Give me my sight, O Lord," said he,
"That I need not be led." [Chorus]

4 And Jesus said, "Receive thy sight;
Thy faith hath saved e'en thee;"
Immediately he saw the light
As well as others see. [Chorus]

5 He follow'd, glorifying God,
All people praised Him, too,
Who came to shed His precious blood,
And gave us sight anew. [Chorus]
