Original Post


The following suggestions were culled from a previous thread about music resources for a song titled "Ten Lepers" that someone was trying to find.

There is a song by Miriam Therese Winter called "Ten Lepers." It is on her CD, "Joy is like the rain", 1966. There was a $4.00 songbook to go with it. It's older, but the CD can still be found on-line if you do a web search.

Update: This song was also later published in the book "Singing the New Testament" published by Faith Alive, Grand Rapids, Michigan, 2008, 9781592554164.

The tune has a 4/4 time signature. When it is set in the key of  D, the first few notes are F A A AB B B.

You can listen to it here:

The chorus goes:
Ten unclean with nowhere to go
Ten men cleansed as clean as snow
One returned to give God thanks
But Nine went away.....

The walking and leaping song I know is about Peter and Paul on the way to the temple healing a crippled beggar (Acts 3:1-8). It's called "Silver and Gold Have I None". Part of the song goes:

he went walking and leaping and praising God ....

We love that song and used it as a lesson in the 3-5 year old class - we made ribbon sticks and walked and leaped around the church. Sorry, this doesn't help with the ten leapers, but it's a great song. It's on the Wee Sing Bible Songs cd/tapes and book, along with tons of other great songs. Book ISBN 0843115661

I created this "mash up" of Saddleback Kid's Ten Lepers animated story with Chris Tomlin's version of Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone) as a reflection piece for my Sunday School, and for Hope you enjoy it.

You can find it on YouTube at

You can play it from your cellphone's internet connection to a TV in your classroom by connecting your cellphone to your TV using an inexpensive adapter cable.
