137. Heal me, O my Savior, heal

7.7.7

Lacrymae:

Arthur S. Sullivan, 1872

Godfrey Thring, 1866

Heal me, O my Savior, heal;

Heal me as I suppliant kneel;

Heal me, and my pardon seal.

Fresh the wounds that sin hath made;

Hear the prayers I oft have prayed,

And in mercy send me aid.

Helpless, none can help me now;

Cheerless, none can cheer but thou;

Suppliant, Lord, to thee I bow.

Thou the true Physician art;

Thou, O Christ, canst health impart,

Binding up the bleeding heart.

Other comforters are gone;

Thou canst heal, and thou alone,

Thou for all my sin atone.

Heal me, then, my Savior, heal;

Heal me, as I suppliant kneel;

To thy mercy I appeal.

Amen.
