7.6.7.6.7.6.7.6.


1
THE Lord who healed the leper
Is looking on thee now;
And, though thy case discerning,
No frown is on His brow.
Not all thy sin's dark story
Has turned away His love;
'Twas need like thine that brought Him
Down from His throne above.
2
The Lord who touched the leper
In His amazing grace,
Though ever pure and holy,
Once took the sinner's place!
His grace and perfect goodness
In all His actions shine;
His cross at length expressing
Both light and love divine.
3
The Lord who cleansed the leper
Can surely make thee clean;
His blood can cleanse the vilest,
Whate'er his guilt has been.
O doubt not He is willing,
But take Him at His word,
Without the "If" exclaiming,
"Thou wilt, Thou canst, O Lord!"
