From the Order of Holy Unction
A Fount of mercy, Lord, Thou art,
Perennial and Divine;
The source of every lasting good,
And every grace is Thine;
Now to the suffering healing give,
And touch the sick that he may live.
O Saviour, Thou alone art God,
And Thou art quick to heal;
For Thou didst wear our feeble flesh,
And all our ailments feel;
And Thou canst make the sufferer whole,
And save the sin afflicted soul.
O Christ, the Great Physician Thou,
Tender and full of power;
Now with the oil of grace anoint
The sufferer at this hour; --
Bid Thou the pain and weakness cease,
And give the sore afflicted peace.
