When He was come into the house, the blind men came to Him: and Jesus saith unto them, Believe ye that I am able to do this? They said unto Him, Yea, Lord.@Matthew 9:28

The blind men to Jesus cried out by the way,
Beseeching in darkness for light;
Oh help, Son of David, have mercy, we pray,
And grant us the blessing of sight.

Refrain

Believe ye that I am able, able to do this?
According unto your faith be it unto you.

O Christian, so weary of sorrow and sin,
Your darkness will vanish away;
His light like the glory of noontide, shine in—
To you He is saying today,

Refrain

Oh wand’rer if you would a blessing receive,
He’s passing, oh do not delay;
But answer Him quickly,
Yea, Lord, I believe,
To you He is saying today,

Refrain

The same Son of David is healing today,
All those who upon Him call;
Yes, Jesus of Nazareth is passing this way,
He’s saying to us, one and all,

Refrain
