What a Saviour!

'Here we are too prone to think highly of our knowledge; but when we arrive
in yonder world of light, to see Him as He is, we shall be ashamed of the
highest conceptions we had of Him, and of our most labored attempts to express
them, while we were imprisoned in this distant land. Then we shall say with the
queen of Sheba, 'Behold the half, the thousandth part, was not told us!' In the
meantime, He is pleased to accept our imperfect stammerings, to assist our
feeble inquiries, and does not disdain (as He justly might) to hear us take His
name upon our polluted lips!'
-John Newton
