But do you for me, O GOD the Lord, for your name's sake: because your mercy is good, deliver you me.
Sir James Simpson, the doctor-saint, was waiting for a train at a station, and when it drew up he saw a poor lad, looking very ill, being conveyed by his mother home. He went in beside them into the carriage, and asked all about the boy. By and by he said to the mother, "Your boy might be made quite well; why don't you take him to Dr. So-and-So? Because," said the mother, "I haven't money enough to pay the fees." "Well," said the stranger, "I am a doctor;" and then he told his name, to the poor woman's great surprise. "Will you put him in my hands, and I will do what I can for him, and it shall cost you nothing?" The mother thankfully consented; her boy was carefully treated, and in a few weeks' time returned home quite cured. The great Physician does all His cures, bestows all His blessings, and gives all His salvation, for love's sake. And His healing is perfect.
