2 Timothy 1:1-4

1 Paul, apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus,
2 to Timothy, dearly beloved son: Grace, mercy, and peace of God the Father and of Christ Jesus our Lord.
3 I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with a pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day,
4 greatly desiring to see thee (being mindful of thy tears), that I may be filled with joy,
