My favorite verse from one of my favorite hymns . . .
Long my imprisoned spirit lay
Fast bound in sin and nature’s night
Thine eye diffused a quick’ning ray,
I woke, the dungeon flamed with light.
My chains fell off; my heart was free.
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.
Amazing love! how can it be
That Thou my God, shouldst die for me?
Charles Wesley, And Can It Be?
