Once long ago in a faraway land In a town very small A little boy sat all alone Children ran by and called him names And laughed at the way he crawled
Tears filled his eyes and he hung his head Like a dog feeling bad Ashamed to be seen by the world His father looked down from the window above And his heart nearly broke from the pain
He walked outside and he picked up his son And cradled him there in his arms They walked down the road, for miles I s'pose Neither one said a word
They came to the village where people were gathered The rumers were true A man of great fame had arrived He sat on a rock and spoke with words That danced like wood on fire
They cut through the crowd and pushed their way His father could not be denied He strode to the front and laid down his son And captured the Master's eyes
"Jesus I ask you to heal my boy I know by your power he'll live Don't let him lie there in so much pain Jesus, oh please say the words" And a silence fell as the crowd held its' breath Waiting to see what would come The master reached down with love in His eyes And said, "Rise my son be healed"
The lad stood up and jumped with joy And the multitude let out a cheer And a father's faith grew strong that day As he followed the King who healed
They walked for miles, the man and his son Laughing and leaping for joy The faith of a dad in the hope of the Word "Rise my son, be healed"
