1 There's a wideness in God's mercy
like the wideness of the sea,
and forgiveness in his justice
sealed for us on Calvary.
2 There is plentiful redemption
in the blood that has been shed;
there is joy for all the members
in the sorrows of the Head.
3 For the love of God is broader
than the measures of our mind;
and the heart of the Eternal
is most wonderfully kind.
4 But we make his love too narrow
by false limits of our own,
and we magnify his strictness
with a zeal he would not own.
5 If our love were but more simple
we should take him at his word;
and our lives would be illumined
by the goodness of our Lord.
