O Lord Jesus Christ
The birds have their nests
The foxes their holes
And Thou didst not have whereon to lay Thy head
Homeless Thou wast upon earth
-And yet a hiding-place
The only one where sinners could flee.
And so to-day Thou art still the hiding-place
When the sinner flees to Thee
Hides himself in Thee
Is hidden in thee
-Then he is eternally defended
Then “love” [for Christ is love] hides the multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:8 Love shall hide a multitude of sins.
Prayer of Soren Kieregaard
