Meeting God

I bless Thee that great sin draws out great grace,
that, although the least sin
deserves infinite punishment
because done against an infinite God,
yet there is mercy for me,
for where guilt is most terrible
there thy mercy in Christ is most free and deep.

Strengthen me to give Thee no rest until Christ
shall reign supreme within me
in every thought, word, and deed,
In a faith that purifies the heart
overcomes the world,
works by love,
fastens me to thee,
and ever clings to the Cross

Amen.


(Isn't Valley of Vision just something?)

Tell me about it. I told my mom to read what I had posted, and then said, "Isn't that SO good?" She replied, "I would guess you could post just about everything in that book, it's so good."

That is the truth!
