1.  O Precious Saviour, heal and bless

The sufferers in affliction.

Thou knowest, Lord, their helplessness;

Look down in benediction

Upon the sick who seek Thine aid,

Let them in faith, all unafraid,

Rest in Thy tender mercy.

2.  “Remember them that are in bonds,”

Thy Word so gently pleadeth,

Thy mercy to our prayer responds,

Thy kindness intercedeth.

Fill us with love, Thou Love divine,

Toward all who in affliction pine,

Let us reflect Thy patience.

3.  O dearest Lord, remember those

In bonds of dread diseases;

Incarnate God, Thy wisdom knows

The balsam that releases.

Thou Sufferer of Calvary,

Let these afflicted hide in Thee,

And in Thy wounds find healing.
