Hymn/Song Information

Life and health are in the name




Life and health are in the Name
Of Jesus Christ our Lord:
Father, forth from thee he came
To be the healing Word,
Now our hearts rejoice to know,
Marking his life as man with men,
Naught there is of weal or woe
That lies beyond thy ken.


Thine the gift of patient will,
Affliction to endure;
Thine the gift of eager skill
That toils to find a cure,
Art to quell the feverís rage,
Faith in the potency of prayer,
Knowledge gained from age to age,
Are tokens of thy care.


Teach us how to use aright
These bounties of thy grace,
Bringing sweetness, health, and light
In every stricken place.
May on earth thy kingdom grow,
Knowledge and faith have common aim,
And the fruits of mercy show
The splendour of thy name.
