The Father is in me, and I in Him.
-- John 10:38

Could we with ink the ocean fill,
And were the heavens of parchment made,
Were every stalk on earth a quill,
And every man a scribe by trade,
To write the love of God above
Would drain the ocean dry,
Nor could the scroll contain the whole
Though stretch'd across the sky.
- Chaldee Ode
