"You children, grasp new courage in your (new)

state of turning to God, the ending will turn out

well and where is the Lord's priesthoods the end

will come, and live right devoutly as God's very

own. Who is of royal high birth will suffer. The

world will tire of such. The sea will rage and surely engulf those it in. Therefore secure a safe refuge in God's house. This God, who took you to Himself

through his spirit, will most of all through Christ (rescue you). Live for Him faithfully and witness

to everyone that God is love."

Inset reads:

"Yea, amen, there are both hands anew inclined to You:

I love You without end

My whole being be risked for this

I will before everyone

Proclaim the lovely Jesus Name

And now I swear eternal loyalty to You

on Your loyal covenant. Amen 1788.
