How wide, Lord?

From the June 29, 1987 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


How wide are Your heavens, Lord? As wide as a tender partent's embrace? As wide as the smile on a playmate's face? That's as wide as a child's eyes can see; But how wide are Your heavens, Lord? As wide as the road outside our house? As wide as the park where I stumble about? That's as wide as my first eager footsteps will measure; But how wide are Your heavens, Lord? As wide as the outer limits of this town? As wide as the countryside, that's beckoning now.
