There's a Wideness in God's Mercy

Author: Frederick W. Faber, 1814-1863 Meter: D Appears in 791 hymnals Scripture: Romans 8:18-39 Lyrics: 1 There’s a wideness in God’s mercy Like the wideness of the sea; There’s a kindness in God's justice, Which is more than liberty. There is plentiful redemption In the blood that has been shed; There is joy for all the members In the sorrows of the Head. 2 For the love of God is broader Than the measure of the mind, And the heart of the Eternal Is most wonderfully kind. If our love were but more simple, We should take him at his word, And our lives would be thanksgiving For the goodness of the Lord. 3 Troubled souls, why will you scatter Like a crowd of frightened sheep? Foolish hearts, why will you wander From a love so true and deep? There is welcome for the sinner And more graces for the good; There is mercy with the Savior, There is healing in his blood.

I see the cross there teach my heart to cling. O let me seek you and O let me find! 4 Teach me to feel that you are always nigh; teach me the struggles of the soul to bear, to check the rising doubt, the rebel sigh; teach me the patience of unceasing prayer. 5 Teach me to love you as your angels love, one holy passion filling all my frame: the fullness of the heaven-descended Dove; my heart an altar, and your love the flame.
