Response: And so I remember
- The only object of my praise — thee, O Lord.
- The abundant themes of praise — all thy marvellous works.
- The proper nature of praise — with my whole heart
I will not speak simply of “works,” but of the marvellous works of God, and of all those “works.” My spirit exults and rejoices in God my Saviour, who has done great things for me, and those marvellous things which follow .I herein sing the marvellous works of God. And these works are wonderful, because he converts those who are nothing, those who have all things, and, those who live in hidden faith, and are dead to the world. He humbles those who flourish in glory, and are looked upon in the world. Thus accomplishing such mighty things without force, without arms, without labour, by the cross only and blood. Who can show forth all the marvellous works of God for love has neither bounds nor end: and, as Paul said (1Co 13:7), “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things;” hence it can do all things, and does do all things, for God looks at my heart and spirit.Praise God.
