(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)
The great Physician now is near —
The sympathizing Jesus;
He speak the drooping heart to cheer —
O hear the voice of Jesus!
Sweetest note in seraph song, Sweetest name on mortal tongue,
Sweetest name on mortal tongue,
Sweetest carol ever sung —
Jesus, blessed Jesus!
Your many sins are all forgiv’n —
O hear the voice of Jesus;
Go on your way in peace to heav’n
And wear a crown with Jesus.
All glory to the dying Lamb —
I now believe in Jesus;
I love the blessed Savior’s name,
I love the name of Jesus.
And when to that bright world above
We rise to be with Jesus,
We’ll sing around the throne of love
His name, the name of Jesus.
