The Great God

The following are some words from a beautiful prayer in The Valley of Vision (a collection of puritan prayers & devotions):

“Nothing exceeds they power,

Nothing is too great for thee to do,

Nothing too good for thee to give.

Infinite is thy might, boundless thy love,

limitless they grace, glorious thy saving name.

 

Let angels sing for sinners repenting, prodigals restored,

backsliders reclaimed, Satan’s captives released,

blind eyes opened, broken hearts bound up,

the despondent cheered, the self-righteous stripped,

the ignorant enlightened

and saints built up in their holy faith.

I ask great things of a great God.”
