Compassion for others

The words of Albert Orsborn are resounding around my head today (SASB 527):

The Saviour of men came to seek and to save
The souls that were lost to the good;
His Spirit was moved for the world which he loved
With the boundless compassion of God….

Except I am moved with compassion
How dwelleth Thy Spirit in me?
In word and in deed
Burning love is my need;
I know I can find this in thee.

The chorus to that song is one of my favorites and one that challenges me. It's good to ask ourselves on a daily basis the questions raised in those words.
