Verse 1: Physician, my heart is aching;
My spirit is ready to break.
My tears fall like the rain both night and day;
Oh, can’t You give me something for the pain?
Chorus: Joy I give you; my joy I give you- better than earthly medicine.
It heals the broken spirit, soothes each aching part-
I can lift your countenance with a merry heart!
Verse 2: Physician, take my trouble away!
I could serve you so much better if You would.
But His voice, so small and still, comes to my ear:
You need this trial, but I’ll take your fear!
Verse 3: Physician, my heart is healing;
Just like you told me that it would.
And now when I meet those who suffer like me,
I can send them to the One that set me free.
