CHRIST, THE GOOD PHYSICIAN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Jesus, thy far-extended fame
Last Line: Art willing to restore them now.
Subject(s): Jesus Christ

Jesus, Thy far-extended fame
My drooping soul exults to hear;
Thy name, Thy all-restoring name,
Is music in a sinner's ear.

Sinners of old Thou didst receive
With comfortable words, and kind;
Their sorrows cheer, their wants relieve,
Heal the diseased, and cure the blind.

And art Thou not the Saviour still,
In every place and age the same?
Hast Thou forgot Thy gracious skill,
Or lost the virtue of Thy name?

Faith in Thy changeless name I have.
The good, the kind Physician, Thou
Art able now our souls to save,
Art willing to restore them now.
