Text heard on Sample:

Luke wrote these words of a man full of demons
Who lived in the tombs, bound in chains.
Fettered and naked, he watched Jesus come to him
Wanting to rid him of pain.
   Jesus commanded the demons to leave,
   Leave the poor man at his feet.
   "Please don't torment me," the man cried in shame.
   "Jesus, my soul is unclean."
Seized by his demons, he broke from his shackles,
The devil controlling his life.
Sent to the wilderness, Jesus pursuing him,
Wanting to help him survive.
   There on this mountain some swine stopped to feed,
   Cared for by men looking on.
   Jesus commanded the demons to go
   Into the herd from the man...

Parable of man and demons, by Carol Barratt
