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 no place where earth's sorrows
are more felt than in God's heaven
there is no place where earth's failings
have such kindly judgement given.
For the love of God is broader
than the grasp of mortal mind
and the heart of the Eternal
is most wonderfully kind.
If our love were but more simple
we would take Him at His Word
and our lives be filled with Glory
from the Glory of the Lord.
