Beggar Man at the Roadside

Beggar man At the Roadside



A man of faith at,


The roadside sat,


A simple man, A beggar he;


Of another man heard he,


Called Jesus, an anointed one


Godís only Son;


The beggar man, blind he was,


Bartimaeus son of Timaeus;



Jesus was passing along the road,


Where that beggar took up abode;


Summoning his faith he called to Him,


And, many tried to discourage him;


But, he called out louder and again,


For Jesusí attention, he must gain;


The beggar man,


That simple man,


Man of faith;



"Jesus, Lord, son of David",


That was what he shouted;


And Jesus heard,


And Jesus answered,


That he be brought forward,


A meeting straightforward;



"What do you want of me"


"That I should see"


And by his faith thus stated


Was he a miracle awarded


He saw the road and followed



After Jesus


Bartimaeus


The beggar man


The simple man


Of faith
