413. O God, Whose Will Is Life and Good

1 O God, whose will is life and good
for all of mortal breath,
unite in bonds of servanthood
all those who strive with death.

2 Make strong their hands and hearts and wills
to drive disease afar,
to strive against the body's ills
and wage your healing war.

3 By healing of the sick and blind,
Christ's mercy they proclaim,
make known the great Physician's mind,
affirm the Savior's name.

4 Before them set your gracious will,
that they, with heart and soul,
to you may consecrate their skill
and make the sufferer whole.
