1 'And Jesus said, receive thy sight,'
And Jesus said, arise and walk.'
With the command He sent the light,
The lame could leap, the dumb could talk.'
And Jesus said, come unto me,
'And I will give thee perfect rest,
Come bear my cross, and thou wilt see
To flow'rs I'll change it thou'lt be blest,
Oh blessed words so fraught with love;
O kind Protector, Heavenly Guide,
I long, I long to soar above,
And nestle close at thy dear side.
2 'And Jesus said, I am the way,'
'I'll give thee clothing, food and drink,
Only believe, the words I say,
I'll guide thee safe to Jordan's brink,
And then I'll bear thee safely o'er
The deep, dark river, thou shalt dwell
At my right hand forevermore,
When thou shalt bid the world farewell. [Chorus]
