240. There's a wideness in God's mercy

8.7.8.7 D.

Beecher:

John Zundel, 1870

Frederick W. Faber, 1862;

cento.

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.

There is welcome for the sinner,

And more graces for the good;

There is mercy with the Savior;

There is healing in his blood.

There is no place where earth's sorrows

Are more felt than up in heaven;

There is no place where earth's failings

Have such kindly judgment given.

There is plentiful redemption

In the blood that has been shed;

There is joy for all the members

In the sorrows of the Head.

For the love of God is broader

Than the measure of man's mind;

And the heart of the Eternal

Is most infinitely kind.

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 the Lord.
