The slender capacity of man's heart cannot comprehend, much less utter, that unsearchable depth and burning zeal of God's love towards us.
      - Martin Luther

A mighty fortress is our God,
  A bulwark never failing,
    Our helper he amid the flood
      Of mortal ills prevailing.
        [Ger., Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott
          Ein gute Wehr und Waffen,
            Er hilft uns frei aus aller Not,
              Die uns jetzt hat betroffen.]
      - Martin Luther, Ein feste Burg,
        (translation by F.H. Hedge)

I need Thy presence every passing hour;
  What, but Thy grace, can foil the tempter's power?
    Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
      Through cloud and sunshine, oh, abide with me!
      - Henry Francis Lyte

I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless;
  Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
      - Henry Francis Lyte, Eventide

A voice is in the wind I do not know
  A meaning on the face of the high hills
    Whose utterance I cannot comprehend.
      A something is behind them: that is God.
      - George MacDonald

God hides nothing. His very work from the beginning is revelation--a casting aside of veil after veil, a showing unto men of truth after truth. On and on from fact Divine He advances, until at length in His Son Jesus He unveils His very face.
      - George MacDonald

God Himself--His thoughts, His will, His love, His judgments are men's home. To think His thoughts, to choose His will, to judge His judgments, and thus to know that He is in us, with us, is to be at home. And to pass through the valley of the shadow of death is the way home, but only thus, that as all changes have hitherto led us nearer to this home, the knowledge of God, so this greatest of all outward changes--for it is but an outward change--will surely usher us into a region where there will be fresh possibilities of drawing nigh in heart, soul, and mind to the Father of us all.
      - George MacDonald

A voice in the wind I do not know;
  A meaning on the face of the high hills
    Whose utterance I cannot comprehend.
      A something is behind them: that is God.
      - George MacDonald, Within and Without
         (pt. I, sc. 1)

The mystery of the universe, and the meaning of God's world, are shrouded in hopeless obscurity, until we learn to feel that all laws suppose a lawgiver, and that all working involves a Divine energy.
      - Alexander Maclaren

The vision of the Divine Presence ever takes the form which our circumstances most require.
      - Alexander Maclaren

Everyone is in a small way the image of God.
      - Manilius (Manlius or Mallius) (Marcus or Caius)

Who can know heaven except by its gifts? and who can find out God, unless the man who is himself an emanation from God?
  [Lat., Quis coelum possit nisi coeli munera nosse?
    Et reperire deum nisi qui pars ipse deorum est?]
      - Manilius (Manlius or Mallius) (Marcus or Caius),
        Astronomica (II, 115)

Every one is in a small way the image of God.
  [Lat., Exemplumque dei quisque est in imagine parva.]
      - Manilius (Manlius or Mallius) (Marcus or Caius),
        Astronomica (IV, 895)

The Lord who gave us Earth and Heaven
  Takes that as thanks for all He's given.
    The book he lent is given back
      All blotted red and smutted black.
      - John Masefield, Everlasting Mercy (st. 27)

God should be the object of all our desires, the end of all our actions, the principle of all our affections, and the governing power of our whole souls.
      - Jean Baptiste Massillon

Could we with ink the ocean fill,
  And were the heavens of parchment made,
    Were every stalk on earth a quill,
      And every man a scribe by trade;
        To write the love of God above,
          Would drain the ocean dry;
            Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
              Though stretch'd from sky to sky.
      - Rabbi L. Ben Issac Mayir (Meir),
        Chaldee Ode,
        trans. from Jewish, sung during the service of the first day of the Feast of the Pentecost

One sole God;
  One sole ruler,--his Law;
    One sole interpreter of that law--Humanity.
      - Giuseppe Mazzini,
        Life and Writings--Young Europe--General Principles
         (no. 1)

Too wise to be mistaken still
  Too good to be unkind.
      - Samuel Medley, Hymn of God

If you wish to behold God, you may see Him in every object around; search in your breast, and you will find Him there. And if you do not yet perceive where He dwells, confute me, if you can, and say where He is not.
      - Metastasio (pseudonym of Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi Pietro)

God, who oft descends to visit men
  Unseen, and through their habitations walks
    To mark their doings.
      - John Milton

To attain the height and depth of Thy eternal ways, all human thoughts come short.
      - John Milton

What can 'scape the eye
  Of God, all-seeing, or deceive His heart.
      - John Milton

What in me is dark,
  Illumine; what is low, raise and support;
    That to the height of this great argument
      I assert eternal Providence,
        And justify the ways of God to men.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. I, l. 22)

These are thy glorious works, Parent of good.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. V, l. 153)

Who best
  Bear his mild yoke, they serve him best: his state
    Is kingly; thousands at his bidding speed,
      And post o'er land and ocean without rest.
      - John Milton, Sonnet--On His Blindness
