2   It is God: His love looks mighty
But is mightier than it seems; 'Tis 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.
3  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,
4   For the love of God is broader
Than the measures of man's mind, And the heart of the Eternal
Is most wonderfully kind. 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.
5   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 should take Him at His word; And our lives would be all sunshine I
In the sweetness of our Lord.
Rev, F, W, Faber, i8fl
