O Lord my God, be not Thou far from me; my God, have regard to help me;
for there have risen up against me sundry thoughts, and great fears,
afflicting my soul. How shall I pass through unhurt? How shall I break
them to pieces? This is my hope, my one only consolation, to flee unto
Thee in every tribulation, to trust in Thee, to call upon Thee from my
inmost heart, and to wait patiently for Thy consolation. Amen.
“Thomas à Kempis
