As the Savior who would have us Come and gath-er round His feet? There's a kind-ness in His justice, Which is more than lib-er- ty. And the heart of the Eternal Is most won-der- ful- ly kind. There is joy for all the mem-bers In the sorrows of the Head.

It is God; His love looks mighty,
There is wel- come for the sinner,
But we make His love too narrow
If our love were but more simple,

George Lomas, (1834-1884)

And more gra - ces for the good;

'Tis our Fa-ther; and His fond-ness Goes far out be-yond our dreams.
There is mercy with the Savior, There is heal - ing in His blood.
And we mag ni fy His strict-ness With a zeal He will not own.
And our lives would be all sun-shine In the sweetness of our Lord.
