1 Where shall we look for help in affliction?
Or whither shall we send?
“The prayer of faith will save,” it is written,
’Tis truth till time shall end.

I touch the word of His promise,

And all Thy word declares Thou art willing
To heal the sick and lame. [Refrain]

3 Thy heart, dear Lord, is full of compassion,

I know Thou healest me. [Refrain]

4 O Christ, Thou art my perfect Physician,
Thy faith now makes me whole;
Thy healing touch pervadeth my body,
And thrills with joy my soul. [Refrain]
