For I am now ready to be offered, and the time for my departure is
at hand. I have fought a good fight and I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of
righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at
that day: and not to me only, but unto all them
also that love his appearing.
II Timothy 4:6-8
