1 There was one who came and knelt at Jesus’ feet,
With sad and downcast eye;
He had heard his doom: O leper, now depart,
Go forth alone to die.

Refrain:
O the love, tender love
O the love, tender love
O the love That Jesus for the soul can feel!
Come in faith just now, as once the leper came,
Where still He waits to heal.

2 With a cheerful step the leper went his way;
Great joy had filled his soul;
For the Lord reached forth His ever gracious hand;
His touch had made him whole. [Refrain]

3 Weary heats bowed down, come worship at the feet
Of Him, your Lord, to-day;
O believe on Him who shed His precious blood
To take your sins away. [Refrain]
