CQOD: 12/20/05 -- Watts: His grace

Christian Quotation of the Day

December 20, 2005
    Justice and judgment are the habitation of thy throne: mercy and truth shall go before thy face.
    Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.
    -- Ps. 89:14,15 (KJV)

    Justice and Judgment are thy throne
        Yet wondrous is thy grace;
    While truth and mercy joined in one,
        Invite us near thy face.
    ... Isaac Watts (1674-1748), Ps. 89, part 2, from The Psalms of David Imitated [1719]
