love unfathomed


O Lord, I cannot plead my love of thee:
I plead thy love of me; –
The shallow conduit hails the unfathomed sea.

Christina Rossetti, 1830-1894, English poet


I pray that you may have the power to comprehend, with all the saints,
what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge,
so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
