Being made so much better than the angels, as he has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.…
Think of all that is represented by that great word "God"; who can fathom it? Nothing is easier than to say the word "universe," and yet it would take us millions of millions of years to bestow one hasty glance upon the surface of that small portion of it which lies within the range of our glasses. But what are all suns, comets, earths, moons, atmospheres, seas, rivers, mountains, valleys, plains, woods, cattle, wild beasts, fish, fowl, grasses, plants, shrubs, minerals, and metals, compared with the meaning of the one name God!"
(C. Stanford, D. D.)
