The Pool Of Bethesada

His two useless legs
Only weighted him
Using his arms pulled
To try to get in
The troubled pool
Thirty-eight years
Sickness lingered
Jesus asked "Do
You want healing?"
The man said
"I can't get
In the pool."
Jesus 
Said "Be
Healed"

Based on John 5: 1-9
Loose translation 
Actually Jesus said pick up your bed and walk...
