DIVINE COMPASSION

KNOWING GOD

mother and sick childdoctor and sick child

Divine compassion will reach out
And touch the lonely bier
And bring to life the widow’s son
And wipe away her tears;
Will grasp the young girl by the hand
And say, ‘Little lamb, arise! ’
And the child leaps up from her bed
To her parents’ great surprise.

Divine love will embrace
Little children in its arms,
As a hen covers her chicks
Under feathers soft and warm;
Divine compassion
In those nail-pierced hands
Laid on a poor bent-up woman
Made her stand
Erect and at ease,
And praise the God of mercy
For her miraculous release.
