Numbers 21:4-9 From Mount Hor they set out by the way to the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom. And the people became impatient on the way. 5 And the people spoke against God and against Moses, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and we loathe this worthless food.” 6 Then the L ORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died.
Numbers 21:4-9 7 And the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the L ORD and against you. Pray to the L ORD, that he take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people. 8 And the L ORD said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent and set it on a pole, and everyone who is bitten, when he sees it, shall live.” 9 So Moses made a bronze serpent and set it on a pole. And if a serpent bit anyone, he would look at the bronze serpent and live.

The Love of God Could we with ink the ocean fill And were the skies of parchment made; Were every stalk on earth a quill And every man a scribe by trade, To write the love of God above Would drain the ocean dry, Nor could the scroll contain the whole Though stretched from sky to sky.
The Love of God O love of God, how rich and pure! How measureless and strong! It shall for evermore endure— The saints’ and angels’ song.
