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

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.
