Bethesda - I'm Here By Your Side

The water is troubled
If only I can make it
Cleanse my body
Cleanse my soul
Too slow I am I know
Where is the help I need
To cleanse me
Cleanse my infirmities
Time has past waiting
Waiting for the pool
I see a Man walking
Who is He
Is He coming for
Bethesda is calm today
Does He not know
This Man stands asking,
"Wilt thou be made whole?"
'Be made whole'
My destination I've longed for
He has cleansed me
Cleansed my soul
Now I ask of you,
"Wilt thou be made whole?"
Reach for this perfect Man
No need for a pool of water
No need to wait
He's by your side
Do you not see
It is through Him
We can be cleansed
It is through Him
We can be made whole
It is through Him
We can be made free
Answer His call
"Rise....and walk"

I'm here by your side
I'll lift you up when
You're about to fall
Take my hand and know
Listen to my voice
Hear my words
See my love
Shining o'er you round
