Lyrics

Traditional language

Saviour, who didst healing give,
Still in power go before us;
Thou through death didst bid men live,
Unto fuller life restore us;
Strength from thee the fainting found,
Deaf men heard, the blind went seeing;
At thy touch was banished sickness,
And the leper felt new being.

2 Thou didst work thy deeds of old
Through the loving hands of others;
Still thy mercies manifold
Bless men by the hands of brothers;
Angels still before thy face
Go, sweet health to brothers bringing;
Still, hearts glow to tell tis praises
With whose name the Church is ringing.

3 Loved physician! for his word
Lo, the gospel page burns brighter,
Mission servant of the Lord,
Painter true, and perfect writer;
Saviour, of thy bounty send
Such as Luke of gospel story,
Friends to all in body’s prison
Till the sufferers see thy glory.

Modern English

Saviour, who did healing give,
Still in power go before us;
Thou through death did bid men live,
Unto fuller life restore us;
Strength from You the fainting found,
Deaf ones heard, the blind went seeing;
At Your touch was banished sickness,
And the leper felt new being.

2 You did work Your deeds of old
Through the loving hands of others;
Still You mercies manifold
Bless us by the hands of others;
Angels still before thy face
Go, sweet health to neighbours bringing;
Still, hearts glow to tell tis praises
With whose name the Church is ringing.

3 Loved physician! for his word
Lo, the gospel page burns brighter,
Mission servant of the Lord,
Painter true, and perfect writer;
Saviour, of Your bounty send
Such as Luke of gospel story,
Friends to all in body’s prison
Till the sufferers see Your glory.
