O my heavenly Father, one God, and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Thou God of all comfort, I thank Thee that Thou hast given for me Thy dear Son Jesus Christ, in whom I believe, whom I have preached and confessed, loved and praised, whom the wicked pope and all the godless shame, persecute, and make fun of. I pray Thee, dear Lord Jesus Christ, let me commend my little soul to Thee. O heavenly Father, if I leave this body and depart, I am certain that I will be with thee forever and can never, never tear myself out of Thy hands. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
It’s important to begin well. It’s also important to live well. But it is much more important to die well. May God grant to each of us such dying grace!
