For you, little child,
Jesus Christ has come, He has fought, He has suffered.
For you He entered into the shadow of Gethsemane and the terror of Calvary.
For you He uttered the cry, “It is finished!”
For you He rose from the dead, and ascended into Heaven.
And there He intercedes –
For you, even though you do not know it, little child.
But in this way the Word of the Gospel is made true:
“We love Him, because He first loved us.”
Words of the French Reformers – may they never grow stale from lack of use.
