Why Me, Lord, Why Me?

An extract from a letter by Howell Harris (1714-1773), to a friend on the distinguishing love of God (no date):

But Oh! That free, sovereign, and everlasting love, that calls those in time, who were elected in eternity! What have we to do but admire more and more this wonderful subject, and exclaim, “Why me, Lord, why me?”
