There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy- 73

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 welcome for the sinner,

and more graces for the good!

There is mercy with the Savior;

there is healing in his blood.

For the love of God is broader

than the measure of our mind;

and the heart of the Eternal

is most wonderfully kind.

If our love were but more simple,

we should rest upon God’s word;

and our lives would be illumined

by the presence of our Lord.
