Compassion's Target

I am down
With the doubting and dirty
I am here
With the broken and pained.
I am still
Bearing hope to the hopeless.
That the loss
Will be more than re-gained.
For I bring
Not my own faltering mercy.
Since I know
It alone won’t suffice.

But I come
With the heart of the Saviour.
Friend, I come
In the power of Christ.
I have prayed
For the right kind of comfort.
I have bound
All the naggings of Hell.
Jesus, come,
You know all this friend’s burden.
Saviour, come,
You do everything well.
