And Jesus answering said unto them,
They that are whole need not a
physician; but they that are sick.

THE GREAT PHYSICIAN
The great Physician now is near,
The sympathizing Jesus;
He speaks the drooping heart to cheer,
Oh! hear the voice of Jesus.
Sweetest note in seraph song,
Sweetest Name on mortal tongue;
Sweetest song ever sung,
Jesus, blessèd Jesus.
Your many sins are all forgiven,
Oh! hear the voice of Jesus;
Go on your way in peace to Zion,
And wear a crown with Jesus.
All glory to the dying Lamb!
I now believe in Jesus;
I love the blessèd Saviour's name,
I love the name of Jesus.
His name dispels my guilt and fear,
No other name but Jesus;
Oh! how my soul delights to hear
The charming name of Jesus.
