…I know the one in whom I have put my trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard until that day what I have entrusted to him.
2 Timothy 1:12
Of the Father’s love begotten, Ere the worlds began to be, He is Alpha and Omega, He the source, the ending he Of the things that are, that have been And that future years shall see, Evermore and evermore.
(The United Methodist Hymnal, Aurelius Clemens Prudentius,
translated by John Mason Neale)
