"Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Paul to the persecuted at Philippi (2:5-11)

To thee before the close of day,
Creator of the world, we pray,
That with thy wonted favor thou,
Wouldst be our guard and keeper now.
From all ill dreams defend our sight,
From fears and terrors of the night,
Withhold from us our ghostly foe,
That spot of sin we may not know.
Father this we ask be done,
Through Jesus Christ thine only Son,
Whow with the Holy Ghost, and thee,
Doth live and reign eternally.
