No bounds

"Eat, friends, drink,
and be drunk with love!" Song of Solomon 5:1

"Persons need not and ought not to set any bounds to their spiritual and gracious appetites. . . . They may drink, yea, swim in the rivers of spiritual pleasure."

Jonathan Edwards, a sermon thesis. I thank Prof. Don Westblade, Hillsdale College, for sharing with me his transcript of the Edwards manuscript.
