[Verse 1]

Am                           F
She kept on getting weaker,  As day dragged into day,  
Am                                  F
The doctors gave no hope for her,  She seemed to fade away,
G                                         Am
My hours were filled with constant dread. Time became a knife,
F                             E                Am
But slowly and relentlessly, cut the chord of life
Am                                     F
There was a teacher in the region then, Some of us had heard,
Am                           F
That he healed a paralytic,  By the power of just his word,  
G                              Am
So with hope again rekindled,  I went at once to see,  
F                             E                     Am
If I could find a man named Jesus,  From a town in Galilee

[Verse 2]
Am                           F
I began to search the city, Soon I saw the crowd,  
Am                                  F
They were pressing in to touch him,  And they called his name out loud,  
G                                         Am
But with the strength of desperation,  I pushed them all aside,
G                           Am
I threw myself before him,  And from my knees I cried,
Am                                F
Lord come and heal my daughter,  Even now she's close to death,
Am                            F
Her fever's uncontrollable,  She fights for every breath,  
G                              Am
But God's given you the power Life is your's to give
F                             E                     Am
And if you'll just lay your hands on her I know that she'll live
Am       G
she'll live------------  
F      E               Am
she'll li--------------ve 

[Verse 3]

Am                            F
He just begun to go with me,  When a face I saw with fear,
Am                             F 
Came towards me with the news I knew I didn't want to hear,
G                                       Am
And although I tried to steal myself,  I trembled when he said,
F                                 E                   Am
"Why bother the teacher anymore, your little girl is dead."

[Verse 4]

Am                                F
Then Jesus touched my shoulder,  And he told me not to not to grieve,
Am                                           F
The trembling stopped when he looked at me,  and said, "Only believe."
G                             Am
Then he sent the crowds away Except his closest men,  
F                                   E                   Am
And they followed right behind us,  As we started off again,  
Am                                            F
But we were still a long ways down the road, When I heard the sounds and cries,  
Am                              F
of the mourners and musicians,  As they strove to dramatize,  
G                             Am
My grief they had no business with Beneath their loud disguise
F                                   E                         Am
And my wife just sat their silently And stared through empty eyes

[Verse 5]

Am                                F
Then Jesus asked the mourners,  "Why is it that you weep?,  
Am                                F
She isn't dead as you suppose,  The child is just asleep."
G                        Am
It only took a moment,  for their wails to turn to jeers!
F                               E               Am
"Who does this man think he is Get him out of here!" 
Am                                      F
"But with authority I've never heard,  in the lips of any man,
Am                                   F
He spoke and every sound rolled out with the thunder of command,  
G                             Am
And in the sudden silence,  They all hurried for the door
F                                 E                    Am
Wondering what the reasons were they'd ever come there for

[Verse 6]

Am                                    F
And then he called his 3 disciples,  That were with him on the way,  
Am                                F
He led them and my wife and me,  To where our daughter lay
G                          Am 
He took her by the hand,  he told her, "Child arise."
F                                   E                      Am
And the words were barely spoken,  when she opened up her eyes,  
Am                                    F
She rose and walked across the room and stood there at our sides
Am                                       F
My wife knelt down and held her close,  And at last she really cried
G                            Am 
And then Jesus told us both to see our daughter have some food
F                                 E               Am
But as to how her life was saved Not to speak a word
Am               F
Not to speak a word
Am                   F
But I gotta tell somebody
G                 Am 
I gotta tell somebody     
F                     E                   Am
I gotta tell somebody What Jesus did for me

The line should be: That he healed a paralytic ...
