Meditations on Christ the Redeemer
Come to Christ, our Redeemer and Saviour, who refreshes all that truly come unto Him, be their anguish and heaviness never so great. Give credit unto Him, in whose mouth was never found guile nor untruth. By Him you shall be clearly delivered from all your diseases; of Him you shall have full remission. He it is that feedeth continually all that belong unto Him with His own flesh that hanged upon the cross; and giveth them drink of the blood flowing out of His own side; and maketh to spring within them water that floweth unto everlasting life…. Hearken to Christ; give ear unto His words, which shall lead you the right way unto everlasting life, there with Him to live ever as heirs of His kingdom. Amen.
—Archbishop Thomas Cranmer (1489–1556)
