A little, poor, helpless child

(Jonathan Edwards, "Directions How to Conduct Yourself
 in Your Christian Course"--a letter addressed to a young
 lady in the year 1741)

In all your daily living--walk with God, and follow Christ,
as a little, poor, helpless child--taking hold of Christ's
hand, keeping your eye on the marks of the wounds in
His hands and side--whence came the blood which cleanses
you from sin; and hiding your nakedness under the skirt of
the white shining robes of His righteousness.
