THE GOOD SAMARITAN




Father of mercies, send thy grace,
All powerful from above,
To form in our obedient souls,
The image of thy love.


Oh, may our sympathizing hearts
That generous pleasure know,
Kindly to share in others joy,
And feel for others woe.


When the poor helpless sons of grief
In low distress are laid,
Soft be our hearts to soothe their pain,
And swift our hands to aid.


So Jesus looked on dying men,
When throned above the skies;
Pitied our helpless ruined state,
And felt compassion rise.


Down from the realms of bliss he came,
Was laid within the grave;
And gave his own most precious blood
Our helpless souls to save.


On wings of love the Saviour flew
To raise us from the ground;
And gave the richest of his blood,
A balm for every wound.


---Alternative verses---


Oh, may our sympathizing hearts
That generous pleasure know,
Kindly to share in others joy,
And weep for others woe.


When the most helpless sons of grief,
In low distress are laid;
Soft be our hearts their pains to feel,
And swift our hands to aid.


When poor and helpless sons of grief In deep distress are laid, Soft be our hearts to their pains to feel, And swift our hands to aid.

So Jesus looked on dying men.
When throned above the skies;
And midst the embraces of thy love,
He felt compassion rise.


So Jesus looked on dying men.
  When throned above the skies; 
And in the Father's bosom blest, 
He felt compassion rise.


On wings of love the Saviour flew 
To raise us from the ground; 
And made the richest of his blood, 
A balm for every wound.
