Exceedingly Broad

Your commandment is exceedingly broad.

Psalm 119:96

I see th’ exceeding broad command, 

Which all contains in one: 

Enlarge my heart to understand 

The mystery unknown: 

O that with all thy saints I might 

By sweet experience prove 

What is the length, and breadth, and height, 

And depth of perfect love!
