Lord’s Day 3, 2018


I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.”

image

Jesus came down with them and stood on a level place; and there was a large crowd of His disciples, and a great throng of people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon, who had come to hear Him and to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were being cured. And all the people were trying to touch Him, for power was coming from Him and healing them all.

—Luke 6:17–19

The Great Physician.
Luke vi. 19.

image

I.

Ye mourning sinners, here disclose
Your deep complaints, your various woes;
Approach, ’tis Jesus, he can heal
The pains which mourning sinners feeL

II.

To eyes long clos’d in mental night,
Strangers to all the joys of light,
His word imparts a blissful ray:
Sweet morning of celestial day!

III.

Ye helpless lame, lift up your eyes,
The Lord, the Saviour bids you rise;
New life and strength his voice conveys,
And plaintive groans are chang’d for praise.

IV.

Nor shall the leper, hopeless lie
Beneath the Great Physician’s eye;
Sin’s deepest pow’r his word controuls,
That fatal leprosy of souls.

V.

That hand divine, which can assuage
The burning fever’s restless rage;
That hand, omnipotent and kind,
Can cool the fever of the mind.

VI.

When freezing palsy chills the veins,
And pale, cold death, already reigns,
He speaks; the vital pow’rs revive:
He speaks, and dying sinners live.

VII.

Dear Lord, we wait thy healing hand;
Diseases fly at thy command:
O let thy sov’reign touch impart
Life, strength, and health to ev’ry heart!

VIII.

Then shall the sick, the blind, the lame,
Adore their Great Physician’s name;
Then dying souls shall bless their God,
And spread thy wond’rous praise abroad.

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.


Please don’t miss worshiping with your local congregation
if you can possibly help it.
But if you’re in need of a good sermon, try these.
