What a compassionate saviour!
Who loves us great beyond measure…

Our iniquities like filthy rags he wore
All our sins on His shoulders He bore
For our sake, his life he laid
All our debts with His blood He paid
Even when we were lost
He had redeemed us by paying the Calvary cost...
He took our sinful form and left his throne above
To pay a cost triggered by the truest and purest of love

Because of His love
We all live as if our evil days
Never came our ways

Because of His love
Our sins though red as scarlet
We're washed to be whiter than snow tablet

Because of His love
Our flesh and all worldly lust
Surrender to holy living, which we must

Because of His love
Wings like eagles to us who wait
And all crooked roads are made straight

Because of His love
He may not come early, He always answers
Neither comes too late to make us joyful dancers

Because of His love
We're fearless of him who steals, kills and destroys
Like a defended city, we all rejoice

Because of His love
For His flesh and blood, we wine and dine
From all races, we arise and shine

What a compassionate saviour!
Who loves us great beyond measure…

 Once blind: He makes us see
Bound: He sets us free

Lame: He makes us walk
Dumb: He gives us voice to talk

Sick: He gives us healing
Sorrowful: He sets us rejoicing

Barren: He makes us fruitful
Outcast: He makes us useful

Rejected: in Him we’re accepted
He paid all; we’re no more indebted

Poor: He makes us rich
Hungered: we’re fed with bread and fish

Weak: He makes us strong
And gave us a new tongue

He sends the comforter 
And makes us conquerors forever

What a compassionate saviour!
Who loves us great beyond measure…
