Glory for healing

Glory to God for healing in body and soul,
For opening to man discoveries of physical well-being,
And bringing to mankind salvation in Jesus Christ,
For showing that he is Lord over the spiritual and physical,
And demonstrating in every way his mercy and love,
Compassion for the suffering, willingness to hear our pleas.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, for God is good and gracious!
