1 Jesus, since thou art still to-day
As yesterday the same;
Present to heal, in me display
The virtue of thy name.

2 Since still thou go'st about to do
The needy creatures good;
On me, that I thy praise my shew,
Be all thy wonders shew'd.

3 Now, Lord, to whom for help I call,
Thy Miracles repeat;
With pitying eye behold me fall,
A leper at thy feet.

4 Loathsome, and vile, and self-abhor;d,
I sink beneath my sin;
But if thou wilt, a grcious word
Of thine can make me clean.

Deaf and Dumb.
5 Thou seest me deaf to thy commands,
Open, O Lord! mine ear;
Bid me stretch out my withered hands,
And lift them up in prayer.

6 Silent, (alas! thou know'st how long0
My voice I cannot raise;
But O! when thou shalt loose my tongue,
The dumb shall sing thy Praise.

7 Lame at the pool I still am seen,
Waiting to find relief;
While many others venture in,
And wash away their grief.

8 Now speak my mind, my conscience sound,
Give, and my strength employ;
Light as an hart, my soul shall bound,
The lame shall leap for joy.

9 If thou, my God, art passing by,
O! let me find thee near;
Jesus, in mercy hear my cry,
Thou, son, of David, hear;

10 See, I am waiting in the way,
For thee the heavenly light;
Command me to be brought, and say,
"Sinner, receive thy sight."

11 Cast out thy foes, and let them still
To thy great name submit;
Clothe with thy righteousness, and heal,
And place me at thy feet.

12 From sin, and guilt, the power, the pain,
Thou wilt releive my soul;
Lord, I believe, and not in vain,
For thou wilt make me whole.
