846. Your Hand, O Lord, in Days of Old

1 Your hand, O Lord, in days of old
Was strong to heal and save;
It triumphed over pain and death,
O'er darkness and the grave.
To You they came, the blind, the mute,
The palsied and the lame,
The lepers in their misery,
The sick with fevered frame.

2 Your touch then, Lord,brought life and health,
Gave speech and strength and sight;
And youth renewed and frenzy calmed
Revealed You, Lord of light.
And now, O Lord, be near to bless,
Almighty as before,
In crowded street, by beds of pain,
As by Gennes'ret's shore.

3 O be our great deliverer still,
O Lord of life and death;
Restore and quicken, soothe and bless,
With Your almighty breath.
To hands that work and eyes that see
Give wisdom's healing pow'r
That whole and sick and weak and strong
May praise You evermore.
