For Thee, O Lord

Lord, what is my confidence which I have in this life? Is it not Thou, O
Lord, my God, whose mercies are without number? Where hath it ever been
well with me without Thee, or where could it be ill with me, when Thou
wert present? I rather choose to be a pilgrim on earth, than without
Thee to possess heaven. Where Thou art, there is heaven; and where Thou
art not, there is death and hell. There is none that can help me in my
necessities, but only Thou, my God; Thou art my hope, Thou my
confidence. Although Thou exposest me to divers temptations and
adversities, yet Thou orderest all this to my advantage; in which trial
of me Thou oughtest no less to be loved and praised, than if Thou didst
fill me full of heavenly consolations. Amen.

“Thomas à Kempis
