"Christ in Perspective"

                     Dali (1950)

"When I survey the wondrous cross on which the Prince of Glory
died  -  my richest gain I count but loss, and pour contempt on all my pride.

"Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast, save in the death of Christ, my God.  All the vain things that charm me most--I sacrifice them to His blood.

"See, from His head, His hands, His feet -  sorrow and love flow mingled down!  Did e'er such love and sorrow meet, or thorns compose so rich a crown?

"Were the whole realm of nature mine, THAT were a present far too small!  LOVE  SO AMAZING, SO DIVINE demands my SOUL, my LIFE, my ALL!"

                                                                    Isaac Watts
