17 And when I saw him I fell at his feet as dead; and he laid his right hand upon me, saying, Fear not; *I* am the first and the last, 18 and the living one: and I became dead, and behold, I am living to the ages of ages, and have the keys of death and of hades.
O Lord, Thou art, and wast, and art to come,
The great I AM, to Thee be honour, praise!
The First and Last, the Living One who died,
Behold Thou livest now to endless days.
