28. O Cross of Christ [ Text: Stanbook Abbey; Tune: "St. Flavian"]

What I Never want to hear again.
7. O Christ the Healer [ Erhalt Uns, Herr] The lyrics, though doctrinely sound, are well, you decide:
O Christ the healer, we have come
To pray for health, to plead for friends.
How can we fail to be restored,
When reached by love that never ends.

From ev'ry ailment flesh endures
Our bodies clamor to be freed;
Yet in our hearts we would confess
That wholeness is our deepest need.

and ends with:

Grant that we all, made one in faith,
In your community may find
The wholeness that, enriching us,
Shall reach the whole of humankind.

8. Be With Me, Lord [Haugen]
9. Jesus, Lord [Music/Text: R. DeBruyn]
10. Healer of Our Every Ill [Text/Music: Marty Haugen]

12. Father, We Thank You (for this faithful witness) [Text: D.F. Wright; Tune: "Iste Confessor"]
13. O Raise Your eyes on High [Text: R. Wright; Tunes: "Morning song" or "Dunfermline"] Because of the
