Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I feel my sins.
They bite and gnaw and frighten me.
Where shall I go?
I look to you, Lord Jesus, and believe in you.
Although my faith is weak, I cling to you and am made sure,
    for you have promised:
    whoever believes in me shall have eternal life.
Even if my conscience is troubled
    and my sins frighten me and make me tremble, you have said:
    “My son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.
    I will raise you up on the last day, and you will have eternal life.”
I cannot help myself by my own strength.
I come to you for help.
Amen.

Martin Luther, 1483 – 1546, German Reformer

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,
that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but in order that the world might be saved through him.
