Title: There's a Wideness in God's Mercy
Composer: alt. Dutch melody Arr. Julius Rontgen (1855-1933)
Author: Frederick William Faber, 1854;
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 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. 2. For the love of God is broader Than the measures of the mind; And the heart of the Eternal Is most wonderfully kind. If our love were but more faithful, We would gladly trust God's Word; And our lives reflect thanksgiving For the goodness of our Lord.
