You lavished on us,
When the radiance of heaven came to rescue the lost.
You called the sheep without a shepherd to leave their
Distress
For Your streams of forgiveness and the shade of Your
Rest.

What boundless love, what fathomless grace
You have shown us, O God of compassion.
Each day we live an offering of praise
As we show to the world Your compassion.

And with compassion for the hurting You reached out
Your hand
As the lame ran to meet You and the dead breathed
Again.
You saw behind the eyes of sorrow and shared in our
Tears;
Heard the sigh of the weary, let the children draw
Near.

We stood beneath the cross of Calvary and gazed on Your
Face
At the thorns of oppression and wounds of disgrace;
For surely You have borne our suffering and carried out
Grief,
As You pardoned the scoffer and showed grace to the
Thief.

How beautiful the feet that carry this Gospel of peace
To the fields of injustice and the valleys of need.
To be a voice of hope and healing, to answer the cries
Of the hungry and helpless, with the mercy of Christ.
