Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.
On your walls, O Jerusalem,
I have set watchmen;
all the day and all the night
they shall never be silent.
You who put the Lord in remembrance,
take no rest,
and give him no rest
until he establishes Jerusalem
and makes it a praise in the earth.
And will not God give justice to his elect, who cry to him day and night? Will he delay long over them?
I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
