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.
