58. The Great Physician

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

Sweetest note in seraph song,
Sweetest name on mortal tongue,
Sweetest carol ever sung -
Jesus, blessed Jesus!

2 Your many sins are all forgiv'n -
O 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 blessed Savior's name,
I love the name of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 And when to that bright world above
We rise to be with Jesus,
We'll sing around the throne of love
His name, the name of Jesus.
