Nina Simone, Compensation

Nina Simone & Piano

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

This is a piece written by poet Paul Lawrence Dunbar and set to music by Nina Simone.

One of my absolute favorites and it appears on the album Nina and Piano / Silk & soul.
The wording in line 4 is "Gave me the gift of song"
Thank you for adding the lyrics, a good idea. :)
