“It is good for me that I was afflicted.”
Of blessings infinite I read,
The foremost, that my heart hath bled
And thank thee for a moment’s pain,
Whose fruit shall evermore remain;
How good for me the suffering given!
’Tis grace, ’tis holiness, ’tis heaven!
Charles Wesley, Short Hymns on Select Passages of the Holy Scriptures (1762)
