Jesus Heard with Deep Compassion

Full Text

1
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.

2
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.

3
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.
