And for those who want to know – Yes – after a while the feeling in the legs does go…
you gave up your Son
out of love for the world,
lead us to ponder the mysteries of his passion,
that we may know eternal peace
through the shedding of his blood,
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Aber mit der Heimat
geht man immer herum,
durch die Welt,
dort und dort

He consented to be described, and restored the fallen image to its former beauty.
We confess and proclaim our salvation in word and image.
