Divine Scheme

When you come to see Him face to face,
and tell Him what you think of His plan,
when you are some thousands of years
older than you are now,
Will you not adore that Wisdom that
manages this scheme, and the Infinite Love
in which it had its birth?
O, what will you then say of that
amazing condescension
that brought down Jesus to your rescue!
Say, Christian, have you not often
poured out your soul before your Saviour
in acknowledgment of what
you have cost Him ...
And there seemed to be a kind of lifting up,
as if the very bottom of your soul were to rise?
And if any earthbound one had seen you,
they would have wondered what had
happened to you ...
That had so melted your soul in
gratitude and love.

by Reverend Charles G. Finney
