Poems by Robert Herrick
(Available as FREE Ebook)

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