A somber, beautiful prayer. Also suitable for Services of Healing. 2-part choir with organ.
O Son of God, in Galilee You made the deaf to hear,
The mute to speak, the blind to see; O blessed Lord, be near.
Oh listen to the silent prayer Of your afflicted ones.
Oh, bid them cast on you their care; Your grace to them make known.
Make strong their hands and hearts and wills, and drive disease afar,
Help strive against the body's ills and wage your healing war.
Your grace to healing of the sick and blind, Christ mercy did proclaim;
Let us to better know His mind, and to declare His name.
Let us to know Your perfect will; make clean our heart and soul,
and heal us of our earthly ills, And make the sufferer whole.
