WONDROUS DIVINE HEALING
my whole being was invaded
with loathsome sin-cancer cells
I was conquered by fatal pride's virus
yes, spiritually sick was I…
Forsaking hypocrisy-denial’s stink,
I yielded to God, crying for His healing*
confessing my need
for the Saviour’s cleansing blood
of miraculous complete cure
toward triumphant transformation.
Midst grievous terminal stage
God, life's Source, reached down to me
with His wondrous love
restoring, reviving me
by His peace-filled pardon.
Receiving His life eternal grant through faith
I'm freed from death-hell's wages
of sin-cancer's indictment
re-created to serve, exalting Christ
I’ll bring others with soul-ailment to Him
for them to delight in His eternal healing freedom.
Indeed, He offers wondrous soothing
you and I can trust…
assuring marvelous comfort
while gently laying His aid, poetically presented:
“Use my oil and mill my seed
My healing powers are all you need.”**
*Jeremiah 17:14 Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.
**I am Me, Set me Free by Maria Williams
