Paralysis

Having lost the power of walking

And lowered in through the roof

I find myself before the man

The man who knows the truth

 

The story of my life he knows

He sees my very soul

He wants to heal the whole of me

Not just my power to stroll

 

The healing of my body

A wonder to behold

But oh what light my life would see

If he freed my very soul

 

The darkness of the world you see

Comes from the human heart

And healing of the world will be

When I can play my part

 

A girl is stabbed a child is killed

A kidnapped woman dies

The murder of the innocents

Takes place before our eyes

 

Deliver us Lord from evil ways

May war and murders cease

And may I play my part this day

To bring our world to peace
