Father, Forgive Me

“I am always going into the far country, and always returning home as a prodigal, always saying Father, forgive me, and thou art always bringing forth the best robe.”
(Puritan Prayer)

God’s Mercy

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 welcome for the sinner
And more graces for the good;
There is mercy with the Savior;
There is healing in His blood.

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

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