Daq lIj tIQDu' vegh HartaHghach / In your hearts through faith

vetlh Christ may yIn Daq lIj tIQDu' vegh HartaHghach; Daq the pItlh
vetlh SoH, taH rooted je grounded Daq muSHa',
may taH strengthened Daq comprehend tlhej Hoch the le' ghotpu'  
nuq ghaH the breadth je length je height je depth,
je Daq Sov Christ's muSHa' nuq surpasses Sov,  
vetlh  SoH may  taH  tebta'  tlhej  Hoch the fullness  vo'  joH'a'.  KLV

And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love really is.  May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God.   Ephesians 3: 17-19 (NLT)

This comes from a passage of Ephesians that I love 
(in fact I've memorized it from the NLT translation.)

and I really appreciate how the Life Application Bible describes it:

God’s love is total, says Paul. It reaches every corner of our experience. It is wide—it covers the breadth of our own experience, and it reaches out to the whole world. God’s love is long—it continues the length of our lives. It is high—it rises to the heights of our celebration and elation. His love is deep—it reaches to the depths of discouragement, despair, and even death. When you feel shut out or isolated, remember that you can never be lost to God’s love.

God's muSHa', his love, surpasses Sov, our knowledge.  And he gives it freely to all of us.
