The Church praises Him who became man, who suffered and died and rose again, and overcame the kingdom of the underworld in His descent into hell. He is the strong, the mighty, the undying. He comes himself. He comes to the Church, attended by the armies of His angel princes. Thus heaven is opened for the believers. They hear and see the choir of singing angels. Through the coming of Christ to the Church in the presence of the power of the Spirit, the first historical coming of Christ and His future second coming are confirmed.- Eberhard Arnold

Even the smallest selection of the poetic outpouring of human longing will confront us with their deepest content: the longing for God and for unity with God. At the deepest level, they have recognized that the essence of all longing is the cry of the soul to God.
