Lyrics

VERSE 1
Jesus’ fishermen
saw a man in Jerusalem
when they asked the Teacher why
this man was born blind. (He said,)

VERSE 2
“This man nor his parents sinned,”
but it's an opening for God to come in,
redeem more souls, and restore the sight
of many who are blind.

VERSE 3
(So) Jesus knelt in the dust.
Heaven’s work accomplished!
Jesus sent him on to wade.
With earth, you are remade.

CHORUS 1
“This man, born blind…
Love can work in his life. (We must…)
Do God's work in My light
for soon it will be night.”

VERSE 4
Neighbors took him to the Pharisees
when he said he could see.
“Where is the one who opened your eyes?”
“I don’t know,” he sighed.

CHORUS 2
“I was born blind,
but now I see just fine!
Jesus put mud on my eyes,
and now I have sight!”

VERSE 5
His parents, called by the Pharisees,
were stunned to know their son could see:
“How can this be, who opened his eyes,
we don’t know, he was born blind.”

CHORUS 3
So, this man born blind,
when asked again, replied,
(Yeah,) “All I know, is now I see,
and before, I was blind!”

CHORUS 4
We're all born blind.
Love can work in our lives.
Jesus came to open our eyes
because we are born blind.

TAG
(Jesus came)
because we are born blind.
