Our Compassionate God

 

GOD sent JESUS CHRIST, His SON, on a loving mission

His purpose was reconciliation;

LORD JESUS came in obedience and compassion

To alleviate our sinful condition;

By suffering for us, humiliation and condemnation

To ensure our salvation and resurrection.

 

Mercy seasons justice for our human plight

Compassion is Godís Expression;

It becomes a king better than his crown

Compassion should be our impression.

 

Christ emptied HIMSELF to come down from heaven

It is servant-hood HE calls us to follow;

Serve our righteous GOD and our fellow-men,

With loving compassion and not to wallow

In sinful pride, in hedonism or Mammon.

 

In compassion, Christ came to suffer with man

To understand our human weaknesses,

And give us His strength to overcome them.

To show by example, the narrow path to eternal bliss,

By His compassion, HE displays Godís Holiness;

We are encouraged to have a compassionate heart

And love God and neighbour by doing our part.
