Love divine, all loves excelling,He explained how ever since he's not been able to sing hymns, he listens and notices more how amazing they are. The 'pure unbounded love' of Christ! What a marvellous petition this verse is.
Joy of heaven to earth come down.
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling
All Thy faithful mercies crown
Jesus, Thou art all compassion
Pure unboundless love Thou art
Visit us with Thy salvation
Enter every trembling heart.
I thought, yes, we all need to pray this and what a momentous and vital thing it is to have God reinstalled in His rightful place - the human heart. But it needs to be a 'trembling' heart. Any one, even someone like Antony Frew, can draw the conclusion that God is, from the simple observation that matter is. But a 'trembling heart' reflects the Biblical principle that, 'The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom' (Psalm 111:10). Human logic never saved a soul - it must be an act of God and that is why seeing this verse as a petition is so important.
