Jesus Heard With Deep Compassion


Jesus heard with deep compassion pleas for
healing, cries of pain;
cured the lame and cleansed the leper, gave the
blind their sight again.
At his voice, tormenting spirits fled a madman’s
tortured mind;
clothed and healed, he went rejoicing, home and
family to find.

Jesus touched the lives of outcasts, weak or sinful,
scorned or poor;
gave them self-respect and courage, trust and faith
and hope secure.
Truly hearing, truly seeing deep within each troubled
soul,
Jesus healed their wounded spirits, sent them forth
with lives made whole.

Jesus, Lord, our true example, you have shown how
we must live.
Teach us how to share with others everything we
have to give.
Let our days be spent in service; bring us by your
grace to know
healing is the church’s calling, and the path that we
must go.
