Compassion Lyrics

Artist: Nina Simone
Album: And Piano!

Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Nina Simone

Because I have loved so deeply
Because I haved loved so long
God in his great compassion
Gave me the gift of song

Because I have loved so vainly
Sung with such faltering breath
Oh, oh, oh, the Master in
His infinite mercy
Offers the boon of death
