Holy Word: Macro help

Posted this in Priest Forums but I feel like I might get help here.

I use healbot with some macros on my bars. I'm trying to figure out the best way to use the Holy Word changes without wasting two different "mouse assignments" in healbot.

One solution would be a macro on my bar, so when I hover my mouse over a character and press the number, it would heal whoever my mouse is over, and if my mouse isn't selecting someone, it would go to my target.
I've tried this, but the problem is when I set the macro to Holy Word: Chastise, it doesn't change when I enter a different macro state. Does anyone have a solution?

TL;DR
How do you make a macro for Holy Word: Chastise so it changes with your Chakra state?

All holy word macros are broken right now. The only remedy is to use a click macro on a bar button with holy word on it.

Before this patch, such macros worked fine. Its sad they broke them.

Put Holy Word on a bar somewhere (you can hide the bar later). Mouse over that bar and type in:
/run local f = GetMouseFocus(); if f then DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage(f:GetName()) end

That will tell you the identification of the button. Stick whatever you get from that into:
/tar [@mouseover,exists]
/click <button id>
/targetlasttarget

Do NOT remove your un-macroed Holy Word from its button, or else the macro won't work.
