No. 155

This song does not have a title. I know it as “There is a Wideness in God’s Mercy”.

Verse 1:
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.

Refrain:
He is calling, “Come to me!”
Lord, I gladly haste to Thee.

Verse 2:
For the love of God is broader
Than the measure of man’s mind;
And the heart of the Eternal
Is most wonderfully kind.

Verse 3:
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 our Lord.

F.W. Faber
