1 Review the palsied sinner's case,
Who sought for health in Jesus;
His friends convey'd him to the place,
Where he might meet with Jesus.
A multitude were thronging round,
To keep them back from Jesus;
But from the roof they let him down,
Before the face of Jesus.

2 Thus, brethren, help these friends of yours
To find their way to Jesus;
His grace the worst diseases cures;
Oh! help them on to Jesus.
The palsy's fearful stroke they feel;
There's none can save but Jesus;
'Tis he alone their souls can heal:
Oh! help them on to Jesus.

3 The fainting souls by sin diseased,
There's none can save but Jesus;
With more than plague or palsy seized,
Oh! help them on to Jesus.
The seeds of death are sown within,
There's none can save but Jesus;
The worst disease on earth is sin,
Oh! help them on to Jesus.

4 Oh! Saviour, hear their mournful cry,
And tell them thou art Jesus;
Oh! speak the word, or they must die,
And bid farewell to Jesus:
Now let them hear thy voice declare,
Thou all-sufficient Jesus,
That thou didst die to hear their pray'r,
And give them health in Jesus.

5 The great Physician now is near,
The sympathizing Jesus;
He speaks the drooping heart to cheer,
Oh! hear the voice of Jesus;
Your many sins are all forgiven,
Oh hear the voice of Jesus;
Go on your way in peace to heaven,
And wear a crown with Jesus.

6 All glory to the dying Lamb,
I now believe in Jesus;
I love the blessed Saviour's name,
I love the name of Jesus;
His name dispels my guilt and fear,
No other name but Jesus;
Oh! how my soul delights to hear
The charming name of Jesus.

7 Come, brethren, help me sing his praise;
Oh! praise the name of Jesus;
And, sisters, all your voices raise;
Oh! bless the name of Jesus:
And when to that bright world above,
We rise to see our Jesus,
We'll sing around the throne of love
The name, the name of Jesus.
