Comfort in life & death

Q. What is your only comfort

in life and in death?

A. That I am not my own,^1

but belong—

body and soul,

in life and in death—^2

to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.^3

He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood,^4

and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.^5

He also watches over me in such a way^6

that not a hair can fall from my head

without the will of my Father in heaven:^7

in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.^8

Because I belong to him,

Christ, by his Holy Spirit,

assures me of eternal life^9

and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready

from now on to live for him.^10
