Show Us Love

A step closer to Calvary and Easter, we remember the cross this week...
Gracious God,
My heart praises thee for the wonder of thy love in Jesus;
He is heaven's darling, but is for me
the incarnate, despised, rejected, crucified sin-bearer;
In him thy grace has almost out-graced itself,
In him they love to rebels has reached its height;
O to love thee with a love like this!

--from Love Shed Abroad in The Valley of Vision
