“He healeth the broken in heart.” Ps. 147. 3

J. Kent    8.7.

1
Jesus heals the broken-hearted;
O how sweet that sound to me!
Once beneath my sin he smarted,
Groaned, and bled to set me free.

2
By his sufferings, death, and merits;
By his Godhead, blood, and pain;
Broken hearts, or wounded spirits,
Are at once made whole again.

3
Broken by the law’s loud thunder,
To the cross for refuge flee!
O’er his pungent sorrows ponder,
’Tis his stripes that healeth thee.

4
Oil and wine to heal and cherish,
Jesus still to Israel gives;
Nor shall e’er a sinner perish,
Who in his dear name believes.

5
In his righteousness confiding,
Sheltered safe beneath his wing;
Here they find a sure abiding,
And of covenant mercy sing.

6
Seek, my soul, no other healing,
But in Jesus’ balmy blood;
He, beneath the Spirit’s sealing,
Stands thy great High Priest with God.
