One by one they saw Him come

And heard God speak: “This is my Son.”

Then Christ stretched forth His hand to them

And bid each one come near.

And one by one they felt His side …

The print of nails in Jesus’ hands

And all fell down at Jesus’ feet

And worshipped Him with tears.


One by one to Christ they came

And brought their blind, their sick, their lame.

And Jesus laid His hands on them

And healed them ev’ry one.

And each bowed down and worshipped Him

And all the multitude drew near.

And each who came did kiss His feet

And bathe His feet in tears.


One by one the children came

And sat round Jesus on the ground

And Jesus took and blessed each one

And wept and prayed for them.

No tongue can speak the words He said

But joy filled all who heard Him pray.

And angels came in wreaths of flame

And ministered to them.


One by one Christ bids us come

And bring our sins and cares to Him.

And He will lay His hands on us

And heal us ev’ry one.

And may we feel His riven side

And see the nail prints in His hands

And we shall fall and worship Him

And wash His feet with tears.
