They came to Jesus in Galilee
Seeking the master to learn at his feet
How kind his teachings, how gentle his voice
And in his word every heart may rejoice
For blessed, he said, are the humble and meek
All they who mourn who come unto me
For they shall find comfort and peace

I come to him like the multitude
Fed by his wisdom, my spirit renewed
Trusting his word, led by his light
Knowing his law will lead me to life
I come as they came
With faith in his name
I come to him

They sought the healer, they brought their lame,
Blind and infirm, their afflicted and maimed
They cried to Jesus in sorrow and loss
"Thou Son of David, have mercy on us!"
They reached out to him in their suffering and grief
Trusting his power, they sought him in faith
And thus were they healed by his grace

I come to him like the blind and lame
Seeking his mercy to quiet my pain
For as he blessed his children of old
I trust in his power to succor my soul
I come as they came
With faith in his name
I come to him
