Did You See What Jesus Did?

The Poet expresses his amazement over the fact that Jesus, the Holy One of God actually touched the man with leprosy who was considered by the crowd to be unclean. The poet then reflects upon his own desire to be healed and cleansed from the leprosy of his sin


WOW! Did you see what Jesus did?
He touched the leper from whom they hid.
The Holy One touched this unclean soul

Come down and heal me from my leprosy

For dear Lord I would love so very much

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Background: Historians believed that those with leprosy had to cry out "unclean" or ring a bell as they approached people to warn them of their presence.

Scripture:A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, ‘Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.'
Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. ‘I am willing, ' he said. ‘Be clean! ' Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy. (Matthew 8: 1-4)
