His Invocation. 75

Germany, at Langen-Reinsdorff , in the district of Zwickau,
came to Philadelphia, thence to New York, after previous
invitation. On the third Sunday after advent I delivered
two sermons in the Lutheran Church here. I did the same
on the fourth Sunday after Advent. Thereupon I was re-
ceived by the Consistorium of the Christian Protestant Lu-
theran Congregation as their regular pastor and teacher.]

Then follows the invocation :

'■'■ Detis Ter Optimus Alaxi^no qui tntrusit me kanc in
messeni, adsit speciali sua gratia miki operario abjecto et ad-
moduni infirmo, sine qua -pcreunduni mihi est sub mole ten-
tationum, quae me sacpius obrufit. In Te, Domine, speravi,
non sinas me confu7idi! Redde me ad vocationem meam
a-ptum; non cucurri, sed misisti, intrusisti ; interim quic-
quid in me inscio corrupta admiscucrii natura reniitte ; da
veniam humilitcr dcprecanti, per Dominum nostrum, imo
meum Jesum Christum. Amen."

[God, the Father of all mercy, and Lord of great maj-
esty, who has sent me into this harvest, be with me, thy
lowly and ever-feeble laborer, with thy special grace,
without which I should perish under the burden of tempta-
tion which often overcomes me with its might. In thee,
O Lord, have I trusted ; let me not be confounded.
Strengthen me in my calling. I did not seek it, but thou
hast sent me, yea, placed me in the office. Meanwhile
wouldst thou grant remission for whatsoever, without my
knowledge, a corrupt nature has introduced within me, and
forgive and pardon me upon my humble supplication,
through our Lord, yea, my Jesus Christ. Amen.]

Kyacsifuile of this interesting entry is also reproduced ;
it was photographed from the original by the present
writer.

The time when Pastor Falckner arrived in New York was



76 Dotiiinie Justus Falckner.
