SWP-35, The Leprous Jew*


Note that the book from which this song was taken is currently out of print.

1. Behold the leprous Jew*,
Oppressed with pain and grief,
Pouring his tears at Jesus' feet,
For pity and relief,
For pity and relief.

2. "Oh! speak the word," he cries,
"And heal me of my pain:
Lord, thou art able, if thou wilt,
To make a lepper clean,
To make a lepper clean."

*Note- In The Missouri Harmony 2005 "Man is substituted for "Jew" in both the title and in the first verse. Some singers may prefer this alteration.
