Christ, the great Physician

Full Text

1 The blessed Christ of God I see,
In that fair land of Galilee,
He speaks in loving words to me,
“I am the Great Physician.”

Healed by the Great Physician,
Healed by the Great Physician,
Glory to God! He saves the soul,
Maketh the suff’ring body whole;
Thus at His feet my burdens roll,
Healed by the Great Physician.

2 With all my heart I do believe,
I dare not doubt, His Spirit grieve;
Each suff’ring one He will relieve—
Christ is the Great Physician. [Refrain]

3 With great compassion Christ was stirred
While He the plea of suff’ring heard,
He spoke the great life-giving word,
“I am the Great Physician.” [Refrain]

4 He saved the soul from sin and shame,
He healed the sick, the blind, the lame;
I know His pow’r is just the same—
Christ is the Great Physician. [Refrain]
