« Prev I also, like so many more Next »

Thomas Williams

I also, like so many more,

Am here beside the pool;

Waiting the Holy Ghost to stir

These waters deep and cool.

Within salvation's crystal flood,

Through time's long ages proved,

How many hearts found health again,

And all disease removed!

Beside the pool for many a day

My soul has been in grief;

And every hour is like a year,

In waiting God's relief.

And shall it be that I must die,

Who have remained so long?

Before me others always go

And wash, and they are strong.

I was the first of all to come,

But they were first made whole!

When shall the day of healing dawn

On my unhappy soul?

83

Here I shall tarry, come what may,

For who is there can tell

But the Physician will Himself

Come soon, and make me well?
