O bottomless Fountain of all good, I am astonished at the difference between my receivings--and my deservings, the state I am now in--and my past gracelessness, the heaven I am bound for--and the hell I merit. Who made me to differ, but You? I could not have begun to love You, had You not first loved me. O Lord, I am astonished that such a crown should fit the head of such a sinner...such high advancement for one so worthless, such joys for so vile a rebel!
