1 Jesus, and didst thou condescend,
When veiled in human clay,
To heal the sick, the lame, the blind,
And drive disease away?
2 Didst thou regard the beggar's cry,
And give the blind to see?
Jesus, thou Son of David, hear--
Have mercy, too, on me!
3 And didst thou pity mortal woe,
And sight and health restore?
Then pity, Lord! and save my soul,
Which needs thy mercy more.
4 Didst thou regard thy servant's cry,
When sinking in the wave?
I perish, Lord! oh, save my soul!
For thou alone canst save.
