You saw behind the eyes of sorrow and shared in our tears;

Heard the sigh of the weary, let the children draw near.

         A         A/G        D/F#       G

           G                  D/F#        Em7   G/A     D
We stood beneath the cross of Calvary and gazed on Your face,
       G           D/F#         Em7   D/F#  G  A7sus4
At the thorns of oppression and wounds of   disgrace;
           G                  D/F#          Em7   G/A   D
For surely You have borne our suffering and carried our grief,
       G            D/F#               Em7      G/A   D
As You pardoned the scoffer and showed grace to the thief.

         G                  D/F#       Em7   G/A   D
How beautiful the feet that carry this gospel of   peace
       G           D/F#            Em7   D/F#  G  A7sus4
To the fields of injustice and the val - leys  of need;
        G                 D/F#        Em7    G/A  D
To be a voice of hope and healing, to answer the cries 
       G          D/F#              Em7   G/A  D
Of the hungry and helpless with the mercy of   Christ.
