Noon-Day Divinity

"The whole world is not a theater large enough to show the glory of Christ upon, or unfold the one half of the unsearchable riches that lie hid in him. These things will be far better understood, and spoken of in heaven, by the noon-day divinity. Alas! i write his praises but by moon-light; I cannot praise him so much as by halves.

When we have borrowed metaphors from every creature that has any excellency or loverly property in it, till we have stript the whole creation bare of all its ornaments, and clothed Christ with all that glory; when we have even worn out our tongues, in ascribing praises to him, alas! we have done nothing, when all is done."
John Flavel
