Hymn/Song Information

COMPASSIONATE SOWER




Jesus! That soft and tender word,
How melting is the sound!
His name a rich perfume affords,
Diffusing life around.


He knows how prone I am to sin,
How strong temptations are;
When gloomy sorrow works within,
I his compassions share.


he sees the dangers which attend
my weak and ruined frame;
When sore distressed, he’s still my friend,
For once he felt the same.


when cruel foes against me rise,
‘Tis he diverts the storm;
Nor can the mischief they devise,
Their wicked hands perform.


He pitying hears my mournful cry,
And drives despair away;
Knows well the meaning of a sigh,
When guilt forbids to pray.


‘Tis he upholds me when I faint,
And shows his smiling face;
He will not scorn the meanest saint,
Nor slight the weakest grace.
