O GOD,Thy main plan, and the end of thy willis to make Christ glorious and belovedin heavenwhere he is now ascended,where one day all the elect will behold his gloryand love and glorify him for ever.. . .
Thou has led me to place all my natureand happinessin oneness with Christ,in having heart and mind centered only on him,in being like him in communicating good to others;
This is my heaven on earth,But I need the force, energy, impulses of thy Spiritto carry me on the way to my Jerusalem.Here, it is my dutyto be as Christ in this world,to do what he would do,to live as he would live,to walk in love and meekness;then would he be known,then would I have peace in death.
