Hadith Qudsi on the mercy of Allah Ta’ala

Question

I have been searching for a Hadith Qudsi that I heard years ago. It really touched my heart. I’m not sure I have it remembered correctly but it goes something like this:

Allah Ta’ala says, “I create worship and sustain man, but he worships someone else. If anyone comes to me by a hand span I move to him an arms length. If he comes to me walking I go to him running. I am more tender with the believer than a mother with her newborn son.”

Please source the Hadith.

The most envied of people

Question

Can you provide the reference for this narration?

He is unknown among the people [and is not paid any heed]. His provisions are only what is sufficient and he is patient/content with that.” Then he tapped with his fingers and said: “His death comes quickly, his mourners are few, and his inheritance is little.”
