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.
