389. The Great Physician Now is Near

1. The great Physician now is near,
The sympathizing Jesus;
He speaks the drooping heart to cheer,
O hear the voice of Jesus.

Refrain:
Sweetest note in seraph song,
Sweetest Name on mortal tongue,
Sweetest carol ever sung,
Jesus, blessed Jesus.

2. Your many sins He will forgive,
O hear the voice of Jesus;
Your heart to Him, O sinner, give,
And rest your soul in Jesus. [Refrain]

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