THE LEPER HEALED




When the poor leper's case I read,
My own describ'd I feel;
Sin is a leprosy indeed,
Which none but CHRIST can heal.


What anguish did my soul endure,
Till hope and patience ceas'd
The more I strove myself to cure,
The more the plague increased.


While thus I lay distressed, I saw
The Saviour passing by;
To him, though fill'd with shame and awe,
I rais'd my mournful cry:


Lord, thou canst heal me if thou wilt,
Oh, pity to me show;
Oh, cleanse my leprous soul from guilt;
My filthy heart renew."


He heard, and with a gracious look,
Pronounc'd the healing word:
"I will — be clean," and while he spoke
I felt my health restored.


Come, sinners, seize the present hour
The Saviour's grace to prove;
He can relieve, for he is power—
He will for he is love,
