Abundantly Above

"Moreover he made an altar of brass… Thus Solomon made all these vessels in great abundance: for the weight of the brass could not be found out" (2 Chronicles 4:1,18).  "I will lift up mine eyes… My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth" (Psalm 121:1,2).  "The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens" (Proverbs 3:19).  "The wisdom that is from above is… pure, then peaceable, gentle… full of mercy" (James 3:17). 

The brazen altar that was made
With all its vessels round about,
Could not be quantified when weighed;
The weight of brass was not found out. 

Above our feeble comprehension,
God weighed salvation's awful price. 
He knew the cost of our redemption,
The fullness of the Sacrifice. 

Our help has come from heaven's throne
Through Christ, the Lord of all creation!
All He endured cannot be known
Upon the cross for our salvation.   

O Lord, abundantly above
What we could weigh or contemplate,
Your wisdom, mercy, and Your love
For sinners is exceeding great!
