The Crowd Heard The Shout

1. A beggar sat down by the roadside,
So weary and blind he could not see,
Until he heard the sweet voice of Jesus,
Saying, “Weary one, come to Me.”
2. One day to a pleading voice He heeded,
Though mocked and scorned, He raised the dead,
He looked and said, “The maiden’s only sleeping,”
She arose as He took her by the hand.
3. The woman who was troubled and in sorrow,
One day learned that Jesus was near,
While touching the hem of His garment,
She was healed and came to Him in tears.
4. The day Jesus hung up on Calvary,
No one sang His praise from the ground,
The sun grew dark and the mountains trembled,
The saints arose and walked about the town.
5. Three days within the tomb our Lord lay waiting,
For the angel to roll the stone away,
And then He arose on Easter morning,
Triumphant over death, hell and the grave.
And then the crowd heard the shout,
“Sweet Jesus, You’re the one,”
Their voices rang out,
“Praise to God’s only Son,”
That man of Galilee,
Who calmed the raging sea,
He and He alone,
Has for my sins atoned.
