Album: This Is Our God (2008)

  • Lyrics
  • "Healer" is a modern hymn written by the Australian songwriter and evangelical Christian Michael Guglielmucci. It was inspired by his struggle with cancer - which is truly inspirational. Except that it wasn't; in September 2006, Guglielmucci was treated at hospital after a minor accident; the cancer was all in his head, although not literally.

    Two years later his father - his terrestrial one, not the one in the sky - revealed the truth. His son had been suffering not from cancer but from the sins of the flesh, in particular an addiction to pornography. The case became a national scandal, but Jesus will probably forgive him in the end, even if the Australian public won't. >>
