“Dost thou understand me,sinul soul? He wrestled with justice, that thou might-est have rest; He wept andmourned, that thou might-est laugh and rejoice; He wasbetrayed, that thou mightestgo ree; was apprehended,that thou mightest escape;He was condemned, that thoumightest be justiied; andwas killed, that thou might-est live; He wore a crown o thorns, that thou mightestwear a crown o glory; andwas nailed to the cross, withHis arms wide open, to showwith what reeness all Hismerits shall be bestowed onthe coming soul; and howheartily He will receive it intoHis bosom?”
