A prayer by Miles Coverdale, who produced the first complete Bible translation into English:
O Lord Jesus Christ, draw thou our hearts unto thee;
join them together in inseparable love,
that we may abide in thee and thou in us,
and that the everlasting covenant between us may stand sure for ever.
Let the fiery darts of thy love pierce through
all our slothful members and inward powers,
that we, being happily wounded,
may so become whole and sound.
Let us have no lover but thyself alone; let us seek no joy nor comfort except in thee.
