And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.”  When he entered the house, the blind men came to him, and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”  They said to him, “Yes, Lord.”  Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.”  And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly warned them, “See that no one knows about it.”  But they went away and spread his fame through all that district.

Matthew 9:27-31

Lacrimosa, Lee Jeffries (Bristish, 2011)These are Thy glorious works, Parent of Good,

Almighty, Thine this universal frame,

Thus wondrous frame: Thyself how wondrous then!

Unspeakable, who sit’st above the Heav’ns

To us invisible, or dimly seen

In these Thy lowest works: yet these declare

They goodness beyond thought, and pow’r divine.

John Milton, 17th century
