Oh, how beautiful Your redeemed in heaven will be, for it was for us You shed Your blood, not for the stars. We too are Your creatures, not less than the stars, and yet You have loved us a thousand times more than the stars; in this I take comfort. Though diseases may waste me and wither me, yet eternal bliss will make everything beautiful and rosy again. Then I shall shine like the stars, yea, like the angels! -- Valerius Herberger, The Great Works of God, p. 42.
