(Based on Lk 17:11-19)
The Samaritan leper hopped back to base
With an attitude of gratitude
Thank you Jesus!
His voice so loud and dear

A joy fresh and strong like new wine
The outburst of love newly found
His return became a new turn
 From colony to communion

This Gentile, no more a foreigner
Faith, strong as death, is the harbinger
Gratitude is the dance of the believer
And a life for the saved

“Go, your faith has saved you”
Your gratitude rolls high to the altitude
Of a joy on the roll from love unquenched
In the Mary’s Magnificat still fresh
