Compassion Hymn Lyrics - Keith And Kristyn Getty

There is an everlasting kindness you lavished on us
When the radiance of heaven came to rescue the lost
You called the sheep without a shepherd to leave their
For your streams of forgiveness and the shade of your

What boundless love, what fathomless grace
You have shown us, o god of compassion
Each day we live an offering of praise
As we show to the world your compassion

And with compassion for the hurting you reached out
Your hand
As the lame ran to meet you and the dead breathed
You saw behind the eyes of sorrow and shared in our
Heard the sigh of the weary, let the children draw

We stood beneath the cross of calvary and gazed on your
At the thorns of oppression and wounds of disgrace;
For surely you have borne our suffering and carried out
As you pardoned the scoffer and showed grace to the

How beautiful the feet that carry this gospel of peace
To the fields of injustice and the valleys of need
To be a voice of hope and healing, to answer the cries
Of the hungry and helpless, with the mercy of Christ

[God of compassion] implies polytheism—is this god one of many? It’s archaic translation into the Christian arena, which should long have been closed down. Stuart, Keith, & Kristyn, believe here that this god is Jesus, and lacking a trinitarian framework, they thus imply Sabellianism—has their god a father and a spirit face, besides a son face? They suggest that Jesus healed, etc, as God (or a god), so suggest docetism, Apollinarianism, rather than Jesus as a man healing by the spirit of God. Of lesser importance, they treated the repentant zealot on the cross as a mere thief (incidentally the same man as their, ‘the’ scoffer: there were two scoffers). Their final lines drops pretence of this being a prayer-song, since it drops Jesus as actually being sung to, as they switch the song to a song to each other, hence their song is polydirectional, misvisualisation. This shows little idea that singing to Jesus (or to God) is prayer.
