When we attend the doctor’s office

We expect a full recovery;

When with wisdom we are diagnosed

So from our illness we’re set free.

The doctor will first reveal any bad news

Of what our condition truly is,

But then provides a solution

With a detailed prescribed list.

When our physical ailments are revealed

Most times we recover quick,

Since there’s an answer for our healing

So we do not remain sick.

Likewise there’s a doctor for our soul

And He is our great physician;

He forgives, restores and heals entirely

So we regain our original condition.

This doctor has made it very clear

And provides the bad news first,

That we’re all sinners in need of redemption

And for God we need to thirst.

Our medicine and our antidote

Is to hunger and thirst for Him,

As His healing touch and restorative ways

Can mend our soul within.

He gives us the good news indeed

When we’re restored to our right position;

When we surrender our life and trust in Him

As He becomes our great physician.
