God's Mercy

by Robert Herrick

God's boundless mercy is (to sinful man)
Like to the ever-wealthy ocean:
Which though it sends forth thousand streams, 'tis ne're
Known, or else seen, to be the emptier;
And though it takes all in, 'tis yet no more
Full, and filled full, then when full filled before.
