Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Should I fall into depression, and a pitch-black night descend upon my heart, I will say:  O Lord Jesus, blessed Light, now I have need of Your brightness.  Let the rays of Your comforting light fall upon my heart, and I will be healed.  -- Valerius Herberger, The Great Works of God, p. 65

Isn't Herberger helpful to a sorrowful soul by directed the afflicted one to the One who was afflicted for us all?

Exactly! Again and again. It's so comforting and beautiful.
