A friend who had leprosy just like me,
stretched out his hand and asked,
“What do you see“?
To my amazement new skin was where,
leprosy used to be!
He smiled and said, “This is what Jesus
did for me!”
Then he gave this testimony:
I had heard about Jesus,
how he heals the lame,
how the blind now see
and demons flee!
Then I said in my heart,
Perhaps Jesus can heal leprosy?
So I took a bold step,
I stretched out my hand,
I said to the master,
“If you want to Lord, you can heal me!”
Jesus looked at me with love in his eyes,
“I want to son“, then He touched my hand!”
As you can see I am totally free from the curse of leprosy!
I must leave now, I am going home!
I went and told nine of my friends
Who have this curse, just like me.
Then it happened one day,
We were all so sick, depressed, living in misery.
I looked up and my heart skipped a beat,
What was Jesus doing in a village like this?
Hope sprang up when I remembered my friend,
I was the first to cry out,
“Jesus, Master, have mercy on me!”
The ‘me’ became ‘us’ as we all cried out!
Jesus lifted up his voice and gave this command,
“Go show yourself to the priests!”
We knew immediately what that meant.
Jesus had answered our plea!
As we went, we were made whole!
No more stench, no more shame,
No more screaming, “I am unclean.”
As the others hurried on,
I stopped and glanced back,
Jesus just stood there,
As if waiting on me.
I could not contain myself,
My heart was overwhelmed with thankfulness!
I ran back, I fell at His feet,
“Thank you Jesus for saving a stranger like me!”
Is this not a picture of you and I?
Lost and undone. Living a life of sinful misery.
But Jesus came by and touched our hearts.
Forgave our sins and made us anew!
I don’t know about you my friend,
But it seems to me,
The least I could do, Is fall at His feet
And say, “Thank you!”
