Wilt Thou Love God as He Thee?

And as a robbed man, which by search doth find
His stolen stuff sold, must lose or buy it again,
The Sun of glory came down, and was slain,
Us whom he had made, and Satan stolen, to unbind.
‘Twas much, that man was made like God before,
But, that God should be made like man, much more.

From Holy Sonnet 15, by John Donne
