O God!

When the horrifying end of days comes,

All people will call on Your name!

(“Great purification,” Heaven on Earth, no. 13, February 20, 1950)



You, Lord, are forgiving and good,

abounding in love to all who call to you.

Hear my prayer, LORD;

listen to my cry for mercy.

When I am in distress, I call to you,

because you answer me.


Among the gods there is none like you, Lord;

no deeds can compare with yours.

All the nations you have made

will come and worship before you, Lord;

they will bring glory to your name.

For you are great and do marvelous deeds;

you alone are God.


Teach me your way, LORD,

that I may rely on your faithfulness;

give me an undivided heart,

that I may fear your name.

I will praise you, Lord my God, with all my heart;

I will glorify your name forever.

(Psalm 86:5–12)
