Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Oh, dear faithful Lord Jesus, You were good to me even when I was under my mother's heart.  You touched me with Your hand of wonders when I entered the world.  You waited on me in childhood.  You cared for me in youth.  You blessed me as I grew older.  All that I have in, with, and around me comes from Your generous hand.  You will do me good forever and ever.  I am too small for all Your mercy and all Your faithfulness that You have shown me and will show me, but You are not too small to act honorably toward me.  Because You stooped down so low to me, You have all the more honor, and I have the more comfort as I worship You forever.  Amen. -- Blessed Valerius Herberger, The Great Works of God III/IV, p. 226.
