Devout Sigh for the Last Day–Luther

Martin Luther, 1483-1546

from Ev. Luth. Gebets-Schatz

Lord Jesus Christ, please hurry and bring the blessed day when the hope of our glorious redemption shall be fulfilled.  For you have called us to pray for this in the Lord’s Prayer: Thy Kingdom Come!  Then, since you have commanded us to pray this, so also give us grace and help that we do pray it and in addition that we firmly believe that we will finally come to such glory.  Grant also that the same joyful, blessed day of our redemption and glorification come soon, and that we may experience all that we now hear and believe in the Word.  Amen.
