Hymn/Song Information

Deep are the wounds which sin has made




Deep are the wounds that sin has made;
Where shall the sinner find a cure?
In vain, alas! is natureís aid;
The work exceeds all natureís power.


And can no sovereign balm be found?
And is no kind physician nigh,
To ease the pain, and heal the wound,
Ere life and hope for ever fly?


There is a great Physician near;
Look up, O fainting soul, and live!
See in His heavenly smiles appear
Such ease as nature cannot give.


See in the dying Saviorís blood
Life, health, and bliss abundant flow!
íTis only this dear, sacred flood
Can ease thy pain, and heal thy woe.


Sin throws in vain its pointed dart,
For here a sovereign cure is found,
A cordial for the fainting heart,
A balm for every painful wound.


Sin like a raging fever reigns,
With fatal strength in every part;
The dire contagion fills the veins,
And spread the poison to the heart.


And must the sinner sink unblessed?
And is there no physician nigh
The fatal poison to arrest
Eíre he in helpless misery die?


Thereís nought before thee but despair
Rejecting what the Saviour saith;
But place thyself beneath his care
And thou art saved from sin and death.


---Alternative verses---


Deep are the wounds which sin has made,
Where shall the sinner find a cure?
He asks in vain for human aid;
The work exceeds all human power.


Deep are the wounds which sin has made,
Where shall the sinner find a cure?
In vain, alas! is nature's aid;
The work exceeds her utmost power.


But can no sovereign balm be found?
And is no kind physician nigh,
To ease the pain, and heal the wound,
Ere life and hope for ever fly?


Yes there's a great Physician near;
Look up, my fainting soul, and live!
See in His heavenly smiles appear
Such help as nature cannot give!
