For God so loved the world . . .

. . . that He gave his only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

O Lord, I am astonished at the difference
between my receivings and my deservings,
between the heaven I am bound for and the hell I merit.
Who made me to differ, but You?*
