Hymn/Song Information

PITY AND COMPASSION




Did Christ the Saviour stoop so low,
That he for us could heaven forego;
And shall I not myself deny,
His poor to feed, their wants supply?


His liberal hand presented food,
To serve the needy multitude;
By miracles of grace and power,
The numerous sick did he restore.


Then in my heart composed of steel,
That I no more compassion feel,
To those afflicted and distressed,
Smitten of God, by man oppressed?


My dearest Saviour let me be
In temper more conformed to thee;
And with benignity divine,
Let my whole life resemble thine.


Whate’er my neighbour’s troubles are,
May I with him a portion share;
Nor suffer him to nigh alone,
But mingle with his tears my own.
