Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

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. 

2.	There is welcome for the sinner, 
	And more graces for the good; 
	There is mercy with the Savior; 
	There is healing in His blood. 

3.	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. 

4.	For the love of God is broader 
	Than the measure of one's mind; 
	And the heart of the Eternal 
	Is most wonderfully kind. 

5.	If our love were but more simple, 
	We could take Him at His word; 
	And our lives would be more loving 
	In the likeness of our Lord.
