379. There's a Wideness in God's Mercy

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 For the love of God is broader
Than the measures of the mind;
And the heart of the Eternal
Is most wonderfully kind.

4 If our love were but more simple
We should take Him at His word,
And our lives would be all sunshine
In the sweetness of our Lord.

Amen.
