There's a wideness in God's mercy
Tune: Sussex  
Metre: 878 and refrain  

 

Thereís a wideness in Godís mercy,

Like the wideness of the sea;

Thereís a kindness in his justice,

Which is more than liberty.

 

There is no place where earthís sorrows

Are more felt than up in heaven:

There is no place where earthís failings

Have such kindly judgement given.

 

For the love of God is broader

Than the measures of manís mind;

And the heart of the Eternal

Is most wonderfully kind.

 

There is plentiful redemption

In the blood that has been shed;

There is joy for all the members

In the sorrows of the Head.

 

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.
