Wonderful

Horseshoe falls fw

Hugh Binning, Works, p. 37:

Ask not my name, saith the angel to Manoah, for “it is secret” or wonderful, Judges 13:18. It is a mystery, a hidden mystery, not for want of light, but for too much light. It is a secret; it is wonderful; out of the reach of all created capacity. Thou shalt call his name “Wonderful,” Isa. 9:6. What name can express that incomprehensible Majesty? The mind is more comprehensive than words, but the mind and soul is too narrow to conceive him. O then! how short a garment must all words, the most significant and comprehensive and superlative words be?
