Bad-footed brother, I was hopin' to recover but the doctors I'm sad to say
Said "We can't do nothin' so you're down on your luck because
You're sure to be lame to stay. "
It was clear to me that what I needed was to be the kind of guy you could never resist
Had to beg for my supper with a system I discovered
When I started as a little kid — like this!
See my sign sayin' "Give a coin to the poor"? Could you please find somethin' to spare?
I'd say, "Hey, give a little bit of pity to a cripple!"
When it seemed like they didn't care
But I took a big step as the Bible says with some Christians who were ready to pray
Cause it seemed my feet was ruined but they knew what they was doin'
When the both of them appeared today
And they told me to…
Walk His way (4x)
They just gave me a gift
So John and Peter — was a passin' by this afternoon for prayer time today at three
I said, "Please, I'm beggin' — put some gold in my pockets!"
When they told me, "Baby, look here at me!"
I was a-quite confused I never made it with my legs
Until their voice told me somethin' was diff
They said, "Forget those treasures 'cause we got a better favor."
And they gave me just a little gift like this
Things started tinglin' and the boys gave a pull with my feet flyin' up in the air
Sayin', "Hey, it's a miracle!" It's really pretty clear because I didn't have to sit in a chair
So I took a big step with my right foot and left
With those Christians who were ready to pray
Was a really big improvement 'cause they knew what they was doin'
When they told me now to walk His way
I'm goin' to…
Walk His way (8x)
He just gave me a gift
