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


The beggar man

The simple man

Of faith
