Jesus Heals the Leper
Jean-Marie Melchior Doze, 1864

Lord! whose love, in power excelling,
Washed the leper’s stain away,
Jesus! from Thy heavenly dwelling,
Hear us, help us, when we pray!

From the filth of vice and folly.
From infuriate passion’s rage,
Evil thoughts and hopes unholy.
Heedless youth and selfish age;

From the lusts whose deep pollutions
Adam’s ancient taint disclose.
From the Tempter’s dark intrusions,
Restless doubt and blind repose;

From the miser’s cursèd treasure,
From the drunkard’s jest obscene,
From the world, its pomp and pleasure,
Jesus! Master! make us clean!
