How lost was my condition,
’Till Jesus made me whole;
There is but one Physician
Can cure a sin-sick soul.


Poor sinners, come to Jesus,
O come without delay,
For Jesus is inviting,
O come, O come today.

Next door to death He found me,
And snatch’d me from the grave;
To tell all around me
His wondrous pow’r to save.


A dying, risen Jesus,
Seen by the eye of faith,
At once from anguish frees us,
And saves the soul from death.


Come, then to the Physician,
His help He’ll freely give;
He makes no hard condition,
’Tis only Look and Live.
