“See now that I, even I, am He, and there is no god beside Me; I kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal.” Deuteronomy 32:39

Thus, while His death my sin displays in all its blackest hue,
Such is the mystery of grace, it seals my pardon too.
With pleasing grief and mournful joy, my spirit is now filled;
That I should such a Life destroy, yet live by Him I killed.

John Newton, 18th century
