Chapter 26

Only the Lord God in Heaven,

Only is he supreme.

Only the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,

He is the only God.

He spoke through the prophets

And has given us grace through his son.

Jesus is his name.

The Lord shined on us all.

He has given us rain to nourish us against dryness.

Has he not patched up our holes?

Has he not cast into the sea of our darkness?

Why is the catch not full?

Surely, it is not his net.

His hands are all-powerful,

And his arms are stretched out toward us.

His love overwhelms me.

His position toward me is hard to believe.

For what am I, other than a man

With condemnable deeds.

But grace follows obedience

To his word, which is the bread of life.

Thereby, we live.

Thereby, we have sight.
