Lord’s Day 11, 2020

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


Is there no balm in Gilead?
Is there no physician there?
Why then has not the health of the daughter of my people been restored?
—Jeremiah 8:22

Christ the Physician of Souls.
Jerem. viii. 22.



Deep are the wounds which sin hath made;
Where shall the sinner find a cure?
In vain, alas, is nature’s aid,
The work exceeds all nature’s pow’r.


Sin like a raging fever reigns,
With fatal strength in ev’ry part;
The dire contagion fills the veins,
And spreads its poison to the heart.


And can no sov’reign balm be found,
And is no kind physician nigh,
To ease the pain, and heal the wound,
Ere life and hope forever fly?


There is a great Physician near,
Look up, O fainting soul, and live;
See, in his heav’nly smiles, appear
Such ease as nature cannot give!


See, in the Saviour’s dying blood,
Life, health, and bliss, abundant flow!
’Tis only this dear, sacred flood
Can ease thy pain, and heal thy woe.


Sin throws in vain its pointed dart.
For here a sov’reign cure is found;
A cordial for the fainting heart,
A balm for ev’ry painful wound.

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.
