Where Is God?

Quoted by John Gilmore in Probing Heaven, Key Questions on the Hereafter, (Grand Rapids: Baker Book House, 1989, p. 97

"Where is God?" inquired the mind: "To His presence I am blind. . . .I have scanned each star and sun, Traced the certain course they run;

I have weighed them in my scale, And can tell when each will fail; From the caverns of the night, I have brought new worlds to light;

I have measured earth and sky, Read each zone with steady eye; But no sight of God appears, In the glory of the spheres."

But the heart spoke wistfully, "Have you looked at Calvary?"
