1 Almighty Father, great must be
Your power from all eternity;
How great your love in Christ made known
To those by suffering weighed down.

2 Christ healed the sick, the deaf, the blind,
Brought reason to the splintered mind.
He gave the peace of heaven to men
And set them on their feet again.

3 Yet may these things for us be so,
With Galilee those years ago?
Is life and all its fullness still
For us the heavenly Father's will?

4 Indeed! the Christ who wrought such things
Is Lord of Lords and King of Kings:
Today as yesterday the same
To those who gather in his name.

5 Through laying on of hands and prayer
The sick may in Christ's wholeness share,
And others, nursed to health again,
Renew their strength and lose their pain.

6 Almighty Father, let us see
In Christ man has the victory!
Help us to find, in life and death,
Your everlasting arms beneath.
