67. The great physician now is near

1 The great physician now is near,
The sympathising Jesus;
He speaks, the drooping heart to cheer;
O hear the voice of Jesus!

Sweetest note in seraph song,
Sweetest name on mortal tongue,
Sweetest carol ever sung:
Jesus! blessèd Jesus!

2 Your many sins may be forgiven;
O hear the voice of Jesus!
Go on your way in peace to Heaven,
And wear a crown with Jesus.

3 All glory to the risen Lamb,
I now believe in Jesus!
I love the blessèd Saviour’s name;
I love the name of Jesus.

4 His name dispels my guilt and fear;
No other name but Jesus!
O how my soul delights to hear
The precious name of Jesus!
