Receive me, O Lord Jesus, into the number of Thy children, so that with them I may praise Thy holy and saving name. -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, Sacred Meditation IV.

Matt Carver (Matthaeus Glyptes) said...

Receive me, Jesus, Thou my rock,
Into Thy chosen children’s flock
That in that number I may be
Conjoined for all eternity
With all the saints in hallowed bliss
To praise Thy name, so blest it is,
For in that name all sanctity
And true salvation comes to me…
