THE HEART OF THE ETERNAL


Here’s one of my favorite poems.  It was written by Frederick William Faber, and I found it in a poetry book left to me by myA dad.  Hope you enjoy…but even more…I hope it will help you fully understand the love God has for us! -anita

********************

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.

 

For the love of God is broader

Than the measures 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. 

-Frederick William Faber 1814-1863
