They came down from the mountain, and met a giant crowd.

A man down there was shoutin’, and he was very loud.

“Take pity on my only son. A spirit causes fits.

Disciples have no power, so you’ll have to do it.


“You faithless generation, I hope to leave you soon.”

The boy, well bring him to me, and see what I will do.”

The demon made a show, then had to let him go.

The crowds were sure astounded, as Jesus felled a foe.
