If You are willing, You can make me clean.

Unto the Lord a leper came,
Desiring to be healed,
And on his knees before Him fell;
For cleansing there appealed.
He can heal thee, He will heal thee,
If you wilt believe;
Trust Him fully, trust Him fully;
Cleansing now receive.
The tender heart of Jesus ne’er
Refused so strong appeal,
And there the leper was made whole,
Where humbly he did kneel.
The touch divine his cleansing wrought;
Physicians all had failed;
But Jesus, the Physician Great,
For him has now availed.
Come to the Lord for healing now,
None other can avail;
Call on Him here for cleansing power;
Your prayer will sure prevail.
