Story behind the song
Jeff Leslie came up with a fabulous 1st draft of the story of the Bible where Jesus heals the blind man. Music and production were of my responsibility and together we exchanged a few more drafts untill we were happy with the end result.
Lyrics
WHEN JESUS CAME TO JERICHO Jeff Leslie / Vitor Talhadas As the sun beamed down and burned the sand Sweat stung the eyes of the blinded man He wiped them dry with his dingy cloak As he begged on the streets of Jericho And people passed him every day Without a coin for his cup of clay For all they heard were his endless cries Oh why do I have these blinded eyes CHORUS Then he heard a song way down the distant road He heard a song and his heart was filled with hope The music played and he’d never be the same On the day when Jesus came to Jericho The music that the blind man heard Was the simple sound of the Saviour’s words. So the man cried out above the crowd And Jesus stopped and turned around He told them, “Bring the blind to me For I, alone, can make them see To prove I am the Light, the way This sightless man will see today.” REPEAT 1ST CHORUS BRIDGE Down through the ages his story will be told About the way his life was changed and the Man Who made it so He never saw Him coming but he watched the Saviour go On the day when Jesus came to Jericho LAST CHORUS He heard a song way down the distant road He heard a song and his heart was filled with hope The music played and he’d never be the same On the day when Jesus came to Jericho On the day when Jesus came to Jericho
