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. For the love of God is broader Than the measure of our mind; And the heart of the Eternal Is most wonderfully kind.

4. If our love were but more simple, We would take Him at His Word, And our lives would be all sunshine In the sweetness of our Lord.
