Let it please the Lord to take me out of this life this hour, or whensoever He pleaseth, I leave this behind me, that I do and will acknowledge Jesus Christ for my Lord and my God. I have not this out of the Scripture only, but also by great and manifold experience;
for the name Jesus hath oftentimes helped me, when no creature could help or comfort me. (Prov. 18. 10; Song 1. 3). He that hath Christ for his king and God, let him be assured he hath the devil for his enemy, who will work him much sorrow, and will plague him all the days of his life. But let this be our comfort and great glory, that we poor people have the Lord of life and of death, and of all creatures, clothed with our flesh and blood, sitting at the right hand of God the Father, who ever liveth and maketh intercession for us, and protecteth us. (Acts3.15;Heb. 9.24).
