It’s three o’clock, it’s time to pray
Let’s go as we do every day
Let’s enter through the Jaffa gate
The road that we take day by day
We’ll pass the man for lifetime lame
Who at the gate is daily laid
He can’t do work, he can’t get paid
We’ll give him money for his aid
Here’s the spot where he is laid
Where we can see him every day
He’s always lying here, but wait!
Is something wrong? He’s gone today!
Let’s see what people have to say
They all are running in this way
There’s three men standing past the gate
And one is he who lay down lame!
A man beside the formerly lame
Is quick to speak, is quick to say,
“It’s not our might nor power that made
This lame man walk, for it is faith
In the power of Yeshua’s Name
That gave his feet and ankles strength.
Yeshua, Whom you all betrayed
And crucified, arose from His grave.
“Repent, therefore, from your evil ways
That you might live, that you might be saved.”
The crowd gives ear, their hearts are swayed
For a miracle has taken place
The priests and rulers seem afraid
Of losing prestige, of losing strength
Afraid that the crowd would change its ways
And follow the One with power to save
They’re arresting the men who boldly proclaim,
“In no other name can we be saved.”
These Galileans haven’t been trained
How do they teach, the Scriptures explain?
The rulers are trying their words to refrain
To keep them from teaching the crowd of this faith
But these men will suffer for the sake of His Name
And more men will come to the faith every day
