“At the creation the morning stars sang together and all the children of God rejoiced.
At the birth of Christ the multitude of heavenly hosts raised the jubilee of God’s good will.
On the birthday of the church that church itself sings the wonderful works of God in myriad tones.”
–Herman Bavinck, The Wonderful Works of God (trans. Henry Zylstra; Glenside, PA: Westminster Seminary Press, 1909/2019), 373.
