The Gentle Healer


The Gentle Healer came into our town today
He touched blind eyes and the darkness left to stay
But more than the blindness, He took their sins away
The Gentle Healer came into our town today

The Gentle Healer came into our town today
He spoke one word that was all He had to say
And the one who had died just rose up straight away
The Gentle Healer came into our town today

Oh, He seems like just an ordinary man
With dirty feet and rough but gentle hands
But the words He says are hard to understand
And, yet, He seems like just an ordinary man

The Gentle Healer, He left our town today
I just looked around and found He’d gone away
Some folks from town had followed Him, they say
That the Gentle Healer is the Truth, the Life, the Way

Yes the Gentle Healer is the Truth, the Life, the Way
