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
