644 ~ O God, Whose Will Is Life and Good


O God, whose will is life and good For all of mortal breath: Unite in bonds of servanthood All those who strive with death.


Make strong their hands and hearts and wills To drive disease afar, To strive against the body's ills And wage Your healing war.


By healing of the sick and blind, Christ's mercy they proclaim, Make known the great physician's mind, Affirm the Savior's name.


Before them set Your gracious will, That they, with heart and soul, To You may consecrate their skill And make the sufferer whole.
