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 Up In Heaven.
There Is No Place Where Earth’s Failings
Have Such Kindly Judgment Given.

For The Love Of God Is Broader
Than The Measures Of The Mind.
And The Heart Of The Eternal
Is Most Wonderfully Kind.
But We Make His Love Too Narrow,
By False Limits Of Our Own,
And We Magnify His Strictness
With A Zeal He Will Not Own.

There Is Plentiful Redemption
In The Blood That Has Been Shed;
There Is Joy For All The Members
In The Sorrows Of The Head.
There Is Grace Enough For Thousands.
Of New Worlds As Great As This;
There Is Room For Fresh Creations
In That Upper Home Of Bliss.
If Our Love Were But More Simple,
We Should Take Him At His Word;
And Our Lives Would Be All Gladness
In The Joy Of Christ Our Lord.
