Of nothing…something…

With this service God is highly pleased, because he delighteth of nothing to
make something. So he made the world of nothing: so he raiseth up the poor
and oppressed: so he justifieth the sinner: so he raiseth the dead; and so he
saveth the damned. Whoso then consenteth to God’s nature, and obeyeth his
will, there hoping for something where nothing is, he it is that pleaseth God
and shall never be moved.
