A man came to Jerusalem who loved the poor in heart;

Who healed the lame and blind and dumb with Heaven's healing art.

Many saw His miracles and knew He was the One. 

Among them was a father with a long-tormented son.

Those whom Jesus chose could not help the stricken lad.

They knew their faith was weak and the knowledge made them sad.

The Savior told the father what believing could achieve.

He said all things are possible to them that will believe.

"Lord, I believe! Help thou mine unbelief. "

Lord, heal my son, and turn to joy my grief.

"Lord, I believe.  Help thou mine unbelief.

Oh Lord.  I believe."

 

The Savior healed the little child and all who saw rejoiced.

An only son was now reborn and loving thanks was voiced

For him whose mind and body and body were so many times reviled.

Then later the disciples asked why they healed not the child.

Jesus said it happens through fasting and through prayer.

Our charity and faith are some gifts that we can share.

So when our faith is weak and we are groping for the light,

Remember what the Savior said and follow what is right.

"Lord, I believe! Help thou mine unbelief. "

Lord, heal my son, and turn to joy my grief.

"Lord, I believe.  Help thou mine unbelief.

Oh Lord.  I believe.  Oh Lord, I believe.
