“O God, your goodness is never praised enough! Who is not
deeply impressed by it? How miserably thankless is that person
who does not lift up his heart to You! To You alone be gratitude
and honour — may that here be my desire and my song! Never then
forget the Lord, o my soul! For the Lord never forgets me!
“Remember, o man, the next life — the inheritance reserved for you!
There, surrounded with glory, you will see God everlastingly as He is!
Rejoice then, my soul, expectantly! It cost the dearest price —
the Lamb of God, led and slaughtered, has saved us from sin and guilt!
“May then Your faithful protection, O God, always remain before my eyes!
