Print Thine Image, Pure and Holy by Thomas Hansen Kingo

Print thine image, pure and holy,
On my heart, O Lord of Grace;
So that nothing, high or lowly,
Thy blest likeness can efface.
Let the clear inscription be:
Jesus, crucified for me,
And the Lord of all creation,
Be my refuge and salvation.


Date: 1689 (original in Danish); 1945 (translation in English)

By: Thomas Hansen Kingo (1634-1703)
