THE GOD OF LOVE


There's a Wideness in God's Mercy 22
(WELESLY 8,7,8,7)
Fredrick W. Faber,1854 Lizzie S. Tourjee,1878
 
  1. There's a wide-ness in God's mer-cy,
    Like the wide-ness of the sea;
    There's a kind-ness in his jus-tice,
    Which is more than lib-er-ty
  2. If our love were but more sim-ple,
    We should take him at his word;
    And our lives would be all sunshine
    In the sweet-ness of our Lord
  3. For the love of God is broad -er
    Than the meas-ure of man's mind;
    And the heart of the E - ter - nal
    Is most won - der-fu-ly kind
    A-men


The King of Love My Shepherd Is 23
(DOMINUS REGIT ME. 8,7,8,7)
Henry W. Baker,1868 John B. Dykes,1868
 
  1. The King of love my Shep-herd is,
    Whose good ness fail-eth nev-er;
    I noth-ing lack if I am his,
    And he is mine for-ev er.
  2. Where streams of liv-ing wa-ter flow,
    My ran-somed soul he lead-eth,
    And, where the ver-dant pas-tures grow,
    With food ce-les-tial feed-eth.
  3. Per verse and fool-ish oft I strayed,
    But yet in love he sought me,
    And on his shoulder gen-tly laid, And home, re-joic-ing brought me.
  4. In death's dark vale I fear no ill
    With thee, dear Lord, be side me;
    Thy rod and staff my com-fort still,
    Thy cross be- fore to guide me.
  5. And so through all the length of days,
    Thy good-ness fail-eth nev-er;
    Good Shepherd, may I sing thy praise
    With-in thy house for-ev-er.
