1.  We come to you for healing, Lord,

of body, mind, and soul,

and pray that by, your Spirit’s touch,

we may again be whole.

2.  As once you walked through ancient streets

and reached toward those in pain,

come, risen Christ, among us still

with power to heal again.

3.  You touch us through physicians’ skills,

through nurses’ gifts of care,

and through the love of faithful friends

who lift our lives in prayer.

4.  When nights are long with wakefulness,

through days when strength runs low,

grant us your gift of patience, Lord,

your calming peace to know.

5.  We come to you, O loving Lord,

in our distress and pain,

in trust that through our nights and days

your grace will heal, sustain.
