Only one came back
One came back
Yes, only one came back
To give praise to the Lord
On His way to Jerusalem, Jesus was to see
Ten lepers calling out, “Jesus have pity on me!”
Jesus looked upon them
And heard their cry for help.
He said- “show yourselves to the High priests”
And that was that…but only,… CH.
Now as they were walking, it was plain to see
That they were sick no more, cured they had been
Then one of the ten, when finding he was well,
Went back to our Lord, thanking God, you could tell.…but only,… CH.
“Where are the others, where’s the other nine?
Are you the only one who could spare the time,
To thank God in His goodness? Come get on your feet!
Your faith has made you well again – Go in peace!” .…but only,… CH
