Seek the Sick

"This I know... God is for me... For Thou hast delivered my soul from death" (Psalm 56:9,13).  "If thou criest after knowledge, and... if thou seekest... then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God" (Proverbs 2:3-5).  "It is time to seek the LORD" (Hosea 10:12).  "They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick.  I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance" (Luke 5:31,32). 

It is so wonderful to know
That Christ now stands in our defense! 
His hands, His feet, and side yet show
His wounds of love He still presents.   

The time has come to seek the Lord
And understand with godly fear:
The sin-sick soul cannot afford
To turn away while Christ is near. 

Our Savior came to make us whole,
For all have sinned upon the earth.
He came with healing for the soul
By heaven's cure, the second birth. 

O Lord, You are the great Physician;
For such a time as this we're sent
To seek the sick by Your commission
As You still call them to repent.
