A Time to Heal


The sick crippled and blind, of troubled waters to find
Aside the Sabbath rule, walked Jesus by the pool
Affliction thus pervade, to rest nearby the shade
Of varied people sat, yet laid upon the mat

The healing then began, a poor and crippled man
A statement did foretell, to walk and then be well
To spring and rise alone, to start towards his home
Of miracles revered, for Christ had disappeared

Religious Jews within, accusing him of sin
A command to walk away, presently Sabbath day
Upholding an offence, beyond their own pretence
Likened to revolt, of men who did find fault

Disciples picking corn, for they did not conform
A watchful Pharisee, en route to Galilee
Attended to a man, who had a crippled hand
Though lesser hearts forbid, did as his father did
