|Text:||There's a Wideness in God's Mercy|
|Author:||Frederick W. Faber|
1 There's a wideness in God's mercy,
like the wideness of the sea;
there's a kindness in His justice,
which is more than liberty.
2 There is welcome for the sinner,
and more graces for the good;
there is mercy with the Savior;
there is healing in His blood.
3 But we make His love too narrow
by false limits of our own;
and we magnify His strictness
with a zeal He will not own.
4 For the love of God is broader
than the measures of the mind;
and the heart of the Eternal
is most wonderfully kind.
5 If our love were but more simple,
we could take Him at His word;
and our lives would be more loving
in the likeness of our Lord.
