He is full, infinitely full.

He is divine to me, if He be human to all the world beside. He has done that for me which none but a God could do. He has subdued my stubborn will, melted a heart of adamant, opened gates of brass, & snapped bars of iron. He hath turned for me my mourning into laughter, & my desolation into joy; He hath led my captivity captive, & made my heart rejoice with joy unspeakable & full of glory. Let others think as they will of Him, to me He must be the only begotten of the Father: blessed be His name. & He is full of grace. Ah! had He not been, I should never have been saved.

He drew me when I struggled to escape from His grace; & when at last I came all trembling like a condemned culprit to His mercy-seat, He said, 'Thy sins which are many are all forgiven thee: be of good cheer.' & He is full of truth. True have His promises been, not one has failed. I bear witness that never servant had such a master as I have; never brother such a kinsman as He has been to me; never spouse such a husband as Christ has been to my soul; never sinner a better Saviour; never mourner a better comforter than Christ hath been to my spirit. I want none beside Him. In life He is my life, & in death He shall be the death of death; in poverty Christ is my riches; in sickness He makes my bed; in darkness He is my star, & in brightness He is my sun; He is the manna of the camp in the wilderness, & He shall be the new corn of the host when they come to Canaan. Jesus is to me all grace & no wrath, all truth & no falsehood: & of truth & grace He is full, infinitely full.
