Michael Card – The Gentle Healer lyrics

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
And ordinary man

The Gentle Healer
He left our town today
I just looked around
And found He'd gone away
Some folks from town
Who followed Him, they say
That the gentle Healer is
The Truth, the Light, the Way.
