1 Long, long ago, a captive maid,
A wondrous message gave;
For she believed in Israel’s God,
With power to help and save.
The word she spoke, the truth she told,
Her haughty master moved;
And when he sought the way aright,
The way of life it proved.
2 No help or cure was in her hand,
She was a captive maid;
But she could tell the way to go,
To gain the prophet’s aid.
The sore disease and wasting pain
Were lost in Jordan’s save;
The Syrian captain learned that God
Was strong to help and save.
3 So children now can spread the news
Of Jesus’ power to cure;
To heal the weary, sin sick heart,
And make the spirit pure.
’Tis Jesus only who can save
As in the olden day;
And all may find Him if they will—
A child may point the way.
