Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Isaac went to meet his dear bride.  Oh Lord Jesus, You are the Bridegroom of my soul; how often do You come to meet me!  When I pray, You come and listen to me.  When I suffer any cross, You help me.  When I fall into temptation, You protect me.  Oh, when I must die, come to meet me with Your Bridegroom-like love, and preserve my soul to eternal life.  -- Blessed Valerius Herberger, The Great Works of God III/IV, p. 141.
