The Great Physician now is near

The Great Physician now is near,
  The sympathizing 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!
Your many sins are all forgiv'n,
  Oh, hear the voice of Jesus;
The veil 'twixt you and God is riven,
  Redemption wrought by Jesus.
All glory to the dying Lamb!
  I now believe in Jesus;
I love the blessed Savior's name,
  I love the name of Jesus.
His name dispels my guilt and fear,
  No other name but Jesus;
Oh, how my soul delights to hear
  The precious name of Jesus!

The Lord just ministered to me with this song. The verse ‘speak the drooping heart to cheer’ just lifted the heaviness trying to fasten itself on my heart. Thank You darling Jesus.

I heard the words The Great Physician and the verse us there no balm in Gilead at least two weeks before I got diagnosed with having the dengue virus. It was scary 😱 learning that my blood count had dropped from 12 to 9 and I thought maybe am going to die.

But the Holy Spirit brought back the song and verse to me and then I was comforted knowing that the Lord himself prepared me for the time if brief sickness.

How I praise my Great Physician Jesus Christ the Son of God.
