To sound the depths of love divine

This is a verse from a hymn of Charles Wesley called And Can It Be That I Should Gain?

’Tis mystery all: th’Immortal dies:
Who can explore His strange design?
In vain the firstborn seraph tries
To sound the depths of love divine.
’Tis mercy all! Let earth adore,
Let angel minds inquire no more.
’Tis mercy all! Let earth adore;
Let angel minds inquire no more.

The firstborn seraph is the Devil, he tries to find the end of God’s love for us. The culmination of his plan is when we are at the height of our animosity towards our God – when we murder Christ at the crucifixion (Mark 14:41, Heb 12:3, Matt 20:18). The Devil failure is inevitable. For there is no outer edge to the limitless love of God. The is no limit to his love for us, his children.
