John 17 ©

1Christ prayeth to his Father to glorify him; 6and to preserve his apostles in unity of faith, 15and from all evil; 17and to sanctify them with the word of truth: 20and for the perfect union of all believers, and their admission to a share of his glory in heaven.

1

THESE awords spake Jesus, and blifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, cthe hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee:

5

And now, O Father, lglorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which mI had with thee before the world was.

And tthe glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:
