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.
