Thou hast been ordained an high-Priest, we seal upon thee this ministry. Tho[u] hast approved thyself before God. Thou hast called upon him to make thee an instrument in doing a great work and thou shalt do it. Thou hast longed to do great things and thou shalt do them by going to distant nations. Thy desire shall be granted in gathering up the Lord’s Elect. Thou shalt go and return with many blessings upon thy head, with songs of everlasting joy and no power shall overcome thee. Even so amen.
