1. With a pray’r You fed the hungry,
with a cry You stilled the storm;
With a look You had compassion
on the desp’rate and forlorn.
With a touch You healed the leper,
with a shout You raised the dead;
With a word expelled the demons,
with a blessing broke the bread.
Love incarnate, Love divine,
Captivate this heart of mine
Till all I do speaks of You.
2. As a sheep before the shearer
You were silent in Your pain;
You endured humiliation
at the hands of those You’d made.
And as hell unleashed its fury,
You were lifted on a tree,
Crying, “Father God, forgive them,
place their punishment on Me.”
3. I will feed the poor and hungry,
I will stand up for the truth;
I will take my cross and follow
to the corners of the earth.
And I ask that You so fill me
with Your peace, Your pow’r, Your breath;
That I never love my life so much
to shrink from facing death.
