One by One (Pearson, Hymn Text)
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.
