1 JESUS, thee thy works proclaim
Moses thy forerunner came,
And mighty works he showed;
Minister of wrath divine,
His wonders plagued the sinful race;
Works of purest love are thine,
And miracles of grace.
2 All thy cures are mysteries,
And prove thy power to heal
Every sickness and disease
Which now our spirits feel:
Good Physician of mankind,
Thou wilt repeat thy sovereign word,
Chase the evils of our mind,
And speak our souls restored.
3 Who of other help despair,
And would thy word receive,
Us thou mak'st thy tenderest care,
And kindly dost relieve:
And plague of heart, thou dost remove;
Heal'st whoe'er apply to thee,
With balm of bleeding love.
4 Still thou go'st about to teach,
And desperate souls to cure;
Still thou dost the kingdom preach
Which always shall endure;
Publishest the power of grace,
Which pardon and salvation brings,
Saves our fallen dying race,
And makes us priests and kings.
