A Leper Gives Thanks


In the bible there is a story

about a leper who gave God the glory

Ten lepers had cried out for mercy

whom Jesus did heal

But only one turned back to give thanks

for this miraculous healing so real

The other nine lepers

just went on their way

they didn't even take the time for thanks

to the Lord to say

I was once a leper too

diseased with sin in my soul

but when I asked Jesus for mercy

he made me whole

Like the one leper

I want to give Jesus thanks

for saving me with his mercy

and pulling me out of sin's ranks


Luke 17:15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God.

17:16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.

17:17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?

Lepers still exist. It is a disease and not someone who is “cast off.” Unfortunately, in some parts of the world, lepers are not treated for their disease, but set aside for their “affliction.”
