Representative Text

1 Jesus of Nazareth, healer of men,
Curer of halt and of blind;
Worker of wonders, again and again,
Seeking the sad ones to find.

Jesus of Nazareth, tell it again:
Died on the cross for sinful men.

2 Jesus of Nazareth, curer of sin,
Seeker for lost and defiled;
Striving so kindly the straying to win,
Loving each penitent child. [Refrain]

3 Jesus of Nazareth, dying for all,
Hanging in pain on the tree;
Suffering so meekly, that we who may call,
Pardon thro’ Him may have free. [Refrain]
