Jesus Cured the Blind Man of Jericho


Luke 18:35-43


When the blind man heard that Jesus was near,

The blind man cried to Jesus for mercy.

When other people told him to be still,

The blind man cried out to Jesus louder.


The blind man wanted to receive his sight.

His faith in Jesus made the cure all right.

The blind man persevered.  The crowd praised God.

Luke recorded the cure in his Gospel.


Here is what Jack Benny said about his

glasses.  “I just need these to see.”  Woody

Allen says his optometrist calls out

the eye chart letters and asks, “True or false?”


My eyes are fine.  Now that I can see well

I can write poetry that does not smell.
