Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.89

First Line: The Great Physician now is near,

The Great Physician now is near,
The sympathising Jesus ;
He speaks the drooping heart to cheer,
Oh, hear the voice of Jesus !

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

2 Your many sins are all forgiven ;
Oh, 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 blessed Saviour's name,
I love the name of Jesus.

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

5 Come, brethren, help me sing His praise.
Oh, praise the name of Jesus !
Come, sisters, all your voices raise,
Oh, bless the name of Jesus !

6 The children, too, both great and small,
Who love the name of Jesus,
May now accept the gracious call
To work and live for Jesus.

7 And when to the bright world above
We rise to see our Jesus,
We'll sing around the throne of love
His name, the name of Jesus.
