     1 When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. 2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 3 And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4 And Jesus saith unto him, See thou tell no man; but go thy way, shew thyself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them.

     5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. 8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. 9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.(KJV)

1. Father of mercies, in Thy Word 
What endless glory shines! 
Forever be Thy name adored 
For these celestial lines. 

2. Here may the blind and hungry come 
And light and food receive; 
Here shall the lowliest guest have room 
And taste and see and live. 

3. Here springs of consolation rise 
To cheer the fainting mind, 
And thirsting souls receive supplies 
And sweet refreshment find. 

4. Here the Redeemer’s welcome voice 
Spreads heavenly peace around, 
And life and everlasting joys 
Attend the blissful sound. 

5. Oh, may these heavenly pages be 
My ever dear delight; 
And still new beauties may I see 
And still increasing light! 

6. Divine Instructor, gracious Lord, 
Be Thou forever near; 
Teach me to love Thy sacred Word 
And view my Savior here.
