Reading some hymn lyrics (artifacts from the evangelical movement of which I arise) and just plain bowled over. This stuff is amazing!
[from “And Can It Be,” by Charles Wesley]
‘Tis mystery all! Th’Immortal dies!
Who can explore His strange design?
In vain the firstborn seraph tries
To sound the depths of love divine!
‘Tis mercy all! let earth adore,
Let angel minds inquire no more.
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou, my God, should die for me!
