Jesus said,
"I will give you what no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
what no hand has touched,
and what has not arisen in the human mind."
--Gospel of Thomas, logion 17 (tr. April D. DeConick)

(See also 1 Corinthians 2:9-10.)


I am giving you what no eye sees.
I am giving you what no ear hears.
I am giving you what no hand holds.
I am giving you what no mind knows.
Beyond all sight, beyond all sound,
beyond all gift, beyond all bound.
I am giving you.
