Contemplation Nine

O true Physician,
O true cure,
O true medicine,
O spirit of life and healing,
Resurrect!

O only bedside watcher through the night,
O keeper of the lantern held high
(over the miles of sick and lonely),
Revive!

O white stone hospice of the dying,
O seashell mansion of the living,
Relay!

O Prayer before a patient’s final word,
O Maternal help at baby’s first breath,
O Prescriber of the remedy,
O Binder of society’s wound,
O Strong and wise figure tried,
Renew!
