2029. The Great Physician

1. 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 carol ever sung,
Jesus, blessèd Jesus.

2. Your many sins are all forgiv’n,
Oh! hear the voice of Jesus;
Go on your way in peace to Heav’n,
And wear a crown with Jesus. [Refrain]

3. All glory to the dying Lamb!
I now believe in Jesus;
I love the blessèd Savior’s name,
I love the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

4. The children, too, both great and small,
Who love the name of Jesus,
May now accept the gracious call
To work and live for Jesus. [Refrain]

5. Come, brethren, help me sing His praise,
Oh, praise the name of Jesus;
Oh, sisters, all your voices raise,
Oh, bless the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

6. His name dispels my guilt and fear,
No other name but Jesus;
Oh! how my soul delights to hear
The charming name of Jesus. [Refrain]

7. And when to that bright world above,
We rise to see our Jesus,
We’ll sing around the throne of love
His name, the name of Jesus. [Refrain]
