Lyrics: VERSE 1:
Jesus was here, he came to this land, and showed them the wounds in His feet and His hands.
He taught them truths that their minds longed to hear, and then He showed them faith that dissolved all their fear. He said he would leave but when He saw their tears, He said, "Bring your sick, blind and withered ones here."
Then they could see, then they could hear. They washed His feet with their tears.
He healed them all, He made them walk, His deeds live on through the years.

He was here upon this land where righteous saints and prophets stand.
Praise the sky and kiss the ground, where His footsteps once were found.

Then Jesus said, "Bring them to me," and so all the children were set 'round His knee.
Then Jesus spoke such a marvelous prayer, the world has never known what was seen and heard there.
And no tongue can speak, and no one's hand can write His wonderful, beautiful words full of light.
Each child was blessed, Every single one; blessed by the pure, holy Son.
Then Jesus told the people to see the angels with the little ones.
