irisdement 2396042bA certain man one day did go down to Jericho
Fallin among thieves along the way
Well they stripped him then they fled
Leaving him for dead
Lying on the side of the road
 
And then the priest came passing by
He crossed over to the other side
Then the Levite came and he did just the same
 
When the Samaritan heard his cry
He just could not pass on by
He dressed his wounds and he carried to the nearest inn
 
Well he reached down, he reached down
He got right there on the ground
He reached down, he reached down
And he touched the pain
 
He paid the keeper the amount that was due
If you need more he said Im good for that too
He reached down, he reached down
And he touched the pain
 
And the Scribes and the Pharisees
Brought the adultress in for Jesus to see
Lord, shes sinned, now the law says she must be stoned
If theres a one of you thats without sin
Then you can cast the first stone in
One by one they left, leaving Jesus and the woman alone
 
Well no accusers are left that I see
And Woman, neither do I condemn thee
He reached down, he reached down
And he touched the pain
 
In the book a little story got told
About a traveler at the end of lifes road
Hes at the gates of the Kingdom and the Master says Come on in
For I was hungry and you gave me meat
I was cold you put shoes on my feet
When I was in prison there was you who come to see about me
 
Well you reached down, you reached down
You got right there on the ground
You reached down, you reached down
And you touched my pain
 
When you did it to the least of these
He said you were doin it unto me
You reached down, you reached down
And you touched my pain
 
Well he reached down, he reached down
