He went to a city called Nain, and his disciples went with him.
And when he came nigh to the gate of the city,
Behold, there was a dead man carried out,
the only son of his mother, and she was a widow.
When the Lord saw her, he had compassion upon her and said unto her,
“Weep not, weep not,”
And he touched the bier, and they that bore him stood still.
And he said, “Young man, young man, I say unto you, arise, I say unto you,
And he that was dead sat up, and he began to speak,
And he delivered him to his mother.
Jesus could see quite clearly the perfect man who appeared to him where
sinning mortal man appeared to mortals.
He saw the perfect man, created in God’s own likeness,
and this unerring view of man healed the sick,
Healed the sick, Raised the dead.
Heal the sick, Raise the dead.
He saw the perfect man, the perfect man.
