VERSE 1:
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 distress
For Your streams of forgiveness and the shade of Your rest

CHORUS
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!

VERSE 2:
And with compassion for the hurting You reached out Your hand
As the lame ran to meet You and the dead breathed again
You saw behind the eyes of sorrow and shared in our tears
Heard the sigh of the weary, let the children draw near

CHORUS
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!

VERSE 3:
We stood beneath the cross of Calvary and gazed on Your face
At the thorns of oppression and wounds of disgrace
For surely You have borne our suffering and carried our grief
As You pardoned the scoffer and showed grace to the thief

CHORUS
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!

VERSE 4:
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

CHORUS
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!
