Mighty Father, King of Heaven,

Builder of the sun and stars,

Wilt thou listen to my pleading,

As I bleed with wounds and scars?

Pains and torments scourge me daily;

Guilt and grief oppress my soul;

Wilt thou touch my anguished spirit:

Heal, caress, and make me whole?

 

Oh that righteousness would lift me;

Oh that I might cleanse my guilt:

Walk in perfectness before thee,

Doing ever as thou wilt!

Do I hear thy whisper, Father?

Sayest thou, “There is a way!

Jesus Christ, the only Savior,

He can heal thy soul this day?

 

Bow the knee—accept thy Savior:

Follow him from cross to crown!:

He, the glowing torch and beacon,

Leads from grief to glad renown!

Touch his hem in meek submission:

His caress can make thee whole;

He, the great Physician, Healer,

Cures the sickness of thy soul!”
