774. From miles around the sick ones came

1 From miles around the sick ones came,
In hope that One they heard was Lord
would make their souls and bodies well,
with healing touch or saving word.

2 And still they come, new preys of plague,
while often in their rooms of prayer
God’s people worship, safe and sound,
unheeding, even unaware.

3 Recall us to our mission, Lord,
to reach for those cut off, in pain;
to offer friendship, strength, and peace
and be a faithful church again.
