Go Tell John What You Hear And See

Post by savedbygrace » Mon Mar 19, 2007 12:38 am

Hi, I'm looking for the lyrics to a song based on Matthew 11:'4,5,6
It goes something like this

Go tell John what you hear and see
Go tell John what you hear and see
The blind receive their sight and
The lame are walking
The poor hear the gospel
Blessed is he that is not offended in me

Appreciate your help! Thanks.

years ago I heard a choir in my church sing an anthem based on this text. Maybe that's the place to look.

Go Tell John What You Hear And See

I found this Acapella Company version:

As he sat there in that prison cell, he knew just how it came about
And he knew his life was over and he was never comin' out
But there was just one thing he had to know, he had to make a final plea
So he sent his friends to ask the Lord if he was who He claimed to be

Chorus 1:
"Go tell John
That the lame have learned to walk
That the poor can hear the word of God and the deaf can hear me talk
Go tell John
That the blind can finally see, oh and
Blessed is the man who doesn't fall away because of me"

He was born so he could tell the world that the Kingdom was at hand
And that the Christ would soon come after Him to complete the Father's plan
And there was nothing else he wanted more than to see this Kingdom grow
It was the only thing that mattered, it was all he had to know

Chorus 2:
"So go tell John (Go tell John)
That the lame have learned to walk (Deaf can hear me talk)
That the poor can hear the word of God and the deaf can hear me talk
Go tell John (Go tell John) (Go tell John)
That the blind can finally see, oh and
Blessed is the man who doesn't fall away (blessed is the man who doesn't fall) because of me"

Well he gave his life to testify that Jesus was the Son (Jesus was the Son)
He only wanted now to know that it was a good thing he had done (good thing he had done)
Soon he would be murdered by a wicked, evil man
And I'm sure the words of Jesus helped him understand

Repeat Chorus 2

Oh and blessed is the man who doesn't fall away (blessed is the man who doesn't fall) because of me

Bridge:
"Go tell John (go tell John)
That the dead are raised again (dead are raised again)
Go tell John, tell John (go tell John)
That the lepers now are cleansed (the lepers now are cleansed)
Go tell John (go tell John)
That the path he chose was right (path he chose was right)
Go tell John (go tell John)
Go and tell him that I truly am the light"

Repeat Chorus

This may be the song you remember. It is by David Ingles: Go Tell John Again

This is more likely the SATB arrangement you heard the choir singing, Lloyd Pfautsch - Hope Publishing Company, age unknown from site information, but sometime in 1980s
The first line is actually "Go and tell John what you see and hear, that the blind recover their sight." from the Luke version of the incident with Jesus.
