Heal those who are sickly
Please come quickly
By your stripes we are healed
Where your true nature is revealed
Healing is in your wings
When the open wound stings
Or when are organs slow down
Your divine doctor is in town
He has come for the sin-sick
Not for the spiritually fit or slick
Hear Him say, “You took a risk of faith
You are made whole with a clean slate”
Reach out to Jesus
He wants to teach us
What we have been in search of
Restoration from above

There are paraphrases of Scriptures from Isaiah 53:5: “But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed” (NKJV).
Malachi 4:2: “But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture” (NLT).
Mark 2:17: “Jesus, overhearing, shot back, “Who needs a doctor: the healthy or the sick? I’m here inviting the sin-sick, not the spiritually-fit” (The Message).
Mark 5:34: “Jesus said to her, “Daughter, you took a risk of faith, and now you’re healed and whole. Live well, live blessed! Be healed of your plague” (The Message).
