Il8                        FABER'S HYMNS.
Was there ever kindest shepherd Half so gentle, half so sweet,
As the Saviour who would have us Come and gather round His Feet ?
It is God: His love looks mighty, But is mightier than it seems:
'T is our Father: and His fondness Goes far out beyond our dreams.
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.
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.
There is welcome for the sinner, And more graces for the good;
There is mercy with the Saviour; There is healing in His Blood.
There is grace enough for thousands Of new worlds as great as this;
There is room for fresh creations In that upper home of bliss.
