Verse 1
There is an everlasting kindness
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
Verse 2
And with compassion for the hurting
You reached out Your hand
As the lame ran to meet You
And the dead breated again
You saw behind the eyes of sorrow
And shared in our tears
Heard the sigh of the weary
Let the children draw near
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
Verse 3
We stood beneath the cross of Calvary
And gazed on Your face
At the thorns of opression
And the wounds of disgrace
For surely You have borne our suffering
And carried our grief
As You pardoned the scoffer
And showed grace to the theif
Verse 4
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
