Oh Lord, open the King of England's eyes

From Wunztwice:
This year, instead of a Luther build, I decided it might be nice to feature another 'hero of the reformation.' William Tyndale was an English scholar who became a leader in the Protestant Reformation. He dedicated his life to translating the Bible into English from Hebrew and Greek. This was a heretical offence and after many years at his work he was deceived and captured. After over a year and a half of imprisonment he was unwilling to recant. On the morning of October 6th, 1536 he was tied to a stake, strangled, and burned.
His last words were, "Oh Lord, open the King of England's eyes."
Semper Reformanda!
