John Brownlie


ελεους πηγη, υπαρχων 'περαγαθε

Anointing of the sick

A Fount of mercy, Lord, Thou art,

Perennial and Divine;

Thou Source of every lasting good,

All needed grace is Thine;

Now to the sufferer healing give,

And touch the sick, that he may live.

O Saviour, Who alone art God,

Thy hand is quick to heal,

For Thou didst wear our feeble flesh,

And all its ailments feel;

And Thou canst make the sufferer whole,

And save the sin-afflicted soul.


O Christ, the great Physician Thou,

Tender and full of power;

Now with the oil of grace anoint

The sufferer at this hour;

Bid Thou the pain and weakness cease,

And give the sore afflicted peace.
