“Better Now” – The Vespers

Posted on Updated on

Sometimes it is hard for people to understand or believe what Christ can do in a life.  The story of the blind man He healed in John 9 is captured in this haunting video by a group called The Vespers.

They are a pair of siblings–two sisters (the Cryars) and two brothers (the Jones).  The unique way they blend their talents is refreshing and thoroughly enjoyable.

Life is always better when Jesus steps in.  Love the simplicity of this song but just in case you have trouble following lyrics, here they are.

Better Now
Written by Phoebe Cryar and Bruno Jones

Mama says I can’t be healed
Papa says I’m through
They say I can’t use my eyes
Will never be good as new

Oh but I’m better now
Why do you shake your head no
Oh but I met a man
Oh and He’s saved my soul

You don’t believe me when I say
The man you knew was blind
But Jesus told me He’s the light
Then Jesus healed my eyes

Oh and I’m better now
Why do you shake your head no
Oh but I met a man
Oh and He’s saved my soul

You ask again and again
Don’t you believe
Lift up your blinded heart
He’ll help you see

You could be better now
Why do you shake your head no
Oh and I met a man
Oh and He’s saved my soul
You could be better now
Oh well don’t shake your head no
Oh but I met a man
Oh and He’s saved my soul
Oh and He’s saved my soul
Oh and He’s saved my soul

    Haunting melody. Great song about all who are spiritually blind, too.

    Great song…I’ve always thought a study series on Jesus and His encounters with the blind would be a good one.
