Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days

Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

The Great Physician Now Is Near (The Great Physician)

The Composed Song

1. Jesus comes and says unto them

He has only l’mited time

That he will use ‘ven in the world

For He returns to his father

Refrain/Chorus

Behold I send father’s promise to you

Tarry ye in Jerusalem

Until thou be endued with power

Even from heaven above


2. Do not let thine be troubled

And do not be sorrowful

‘Cause it is expedient for you

For me to leave this very world

Refrain/Chorus


3. If I do not leave this odd world

The comforter will not come

But when I leave this very world

The comforter ‘ll come to you

Refrain/Chorus


4. This is the Spirit of my Father

And the Spirit working in Me

This Spirit I am going to send

That he ‘ll be living with Thee

Refrain/Chorus


5. And when he yea the Holy Ghost

Has also entered thine heart

He ‘ll tell you also of the sin

The righteousness and of judgment

Refrain/Chorus


6. Many things have I to also say

Unto Thee my beloved ones

But thou won’t be able to bear them

If there’s no Holy Ghost in you

Refrain/Chorus


7. But when the Spirit has arrived

Yea even Spirit of Truth

He will guide you in all the ways

Yea all the ways of the Truth

Refrain/Chorus


8. The comforter will not even speak

Things concerning himself alone

But everything that he heareth

That’s what he ‘ll speak unto thee

Refrain/Chorus


9. He shall take of things that ‘re mine

And he ‘ll utter these to thee

Even those things that’s yet to come

He ‘ll also show you all those

Refrain/Chorus

10. Everytime the Holy Spirit

Will give glory unto me

A great joy he ‘ll also give you

The which would be indescribable

Refrain/Chorus


11. Wherefore tarry ye also for him

This promise of the Father

That ye shall be ‘ven powerful

In the Lord and in his might

Refrain/Chorus


12. Then thou shall be able to witness for me

Throughout all nations of the world

Also wonders and even signs

They will follow you around

Refrain/Chorus
