Queen Victoria

One day the chaplain of good Queen Victoria preached a sermon on the second coming of Christ. As he spoke of that glorious event, he noticed tears in the eyes of the queen. After the service, he approached her, and asked: "Why did Your Majesty weep as I spoke today?" "Oh," said she, "because I do hope that He will come in my day!" "Why does Your Majesty desire that He should come in your day?" The chaplain asked.

"Oh, sir, that I may lay my crown at His feet!"
