It’s sad nine didn’t return, but what’s really striking is that one actually did. Jesus can so move the heart to faith!

BibleGateway: Luke 17:11-19

ESV Text: Luke 17:11-19


KJV Text:

The section starts at about 1:26 and ends at about 2:30

     11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14 And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 36:
Now Thank We all Our God

— Organ Audio


1. Now thank we all our God 
With heart and hands and voices, 
Who wondrous things hath done, 
In whom His world rejoices; 
Who from our mother’s arms 
Hath blessed us on our way 
With countless gifts of love, 
And still is ours today. 

2. Oh, may this bounteous God 
Through all our life be near us, 
With ever joyful hearts 
And blessed peace to cheer us; 
And keep us in His grace 
And guide us when perplexed 
And free us from all ills 
In this world and the next. 

3. All praise and thanks to God 
The Father now be given, 
The Son, and Him who reigns 
With them in highest heaven: 
The one eternal God, 
Whom earth and heaven adore! 
For thus it was, is now, 
And shall be evermore.
