Go Down (2 Kings 5)
© 2011, Michael Ishii

Hearing God's word through his servant
Desiring to be healed, he went
With silver and gold, and a miracle to buy
Naaman, the Lord God knows your plight.

His hope had turned to frustration
The journey's end now seemed in vain
Though all of the time the voice was ever clear
Elisha's word the messenger made plain:

Go down to the banks of the Jordan
Add faith to the words that the prophet spoke
Go down seven times into the water
and you'll find the healing of the Lord.

What did you think you would witness?
The prophet calling on his God,
a wave of his arm and heaven's hosts at hand?
No, this God works more mysteriously than that.

Go down to the banks of the Jordan
Add faith to the words that the prophet spoke
Go down seven times into the water
and you'll find the mercy of the Lord.

Now I know salvation belongs to him
My body and soul will sing, let it echo and ring
From the mountaintops to the deep blue sea
How an infinite and personal God
could ever love a grave sinner like me.

Naaman, you found the great God,
the king of kings and the Lord of lords
The idols break apart at the thunder of his name
You found him, things will never be the same.

Go down to the banks of the Jordan
Add faith to the words that the prophet spoke
Go down seven times into the water
and you'll find the blessing of the Lord,
and you'll find the salvation of the Lord.
Go down, go down.
