Behold, Lord An empty vessel that needs To be filled. My Lord, fill it I am weak in the faith; Strengthen me. I am cold in love; Warm me and make me fervent, That my love may go out To my neighbor... O Lord, help me. Strengthen my faith and Trust in you... With me, there is an Abundance of sin; In You is the fullness of Righteousness. Therefore I will remain With You, O whom I can receive, But to Whom I may not give.
-Brother Martin Luther of Erfurt (1483-1546)
