A melting consideration



(
Hopkins)

"Christ died for the ungodly." Romans 5:6

O what a melting consideration is this, that . . .
    out of Christ's agony
comes our victory;
    out of His condemnation
comes our justification;
    out of His pain
comes our ease;
    out of His stripes
comes our healing;
    out of His gall and vinegar
comes our honey;
    out of His curse
comes our blessing;
    out of His crown of thorns
comes our crown of glory;
    out of His death
comes our life!

"Hearts must be harder than the rocks
if the love
 and death of Christ do not move them!" (Plumer)
