Song of the Day
June 21, 2014
Ten unclean and nowhere to go.
Ten men cleansed as clean as snow.
One returned to give God thanks,
But nine went away.

1. Ten men, lepers in a Hebrew town.
Ten crying: "Lord, won't you please come down."
No hope near till one fine day,
Jesus of Nazareth passed that way.

2. "Lord make me clean," was their single cry.
"See, how the whole world passes us by.
No man's home will take us in!"
Then Christ bent down to touch their skin.

3. God gives gifts to us every day,
Favors His people in every way;
Hope restored and pain relieved -
Do you ever give thanks for a gift received?

4. Thank you Lord, for the summer sun,
For sight and song and good deeds done,
Faith and family and loving friends,
For the day that begins and the night that ends.
