Then Shall I Know

Not till the Loom is silent, And the Shuttles cease to fly, Shall God unroll the canvas And explain the reason why The dark threads are as needful, In the skillful weavers hand As the threads of Gold and Silver In the pattern he has planned.   Sent by May Bush (an invalid) 1945. ...

Any Calamity

There is no question but that you can take any calamity that comes to you and make it so big a part of your life that it covers everything you see, or do, or think, with a chill gray atmosphere, until it finally absorbs your own individuality and leads you straight up against the blank wall of nothingness.   Or, you can turn away from it so persistently that you can see everything else in the world, but that one thing, and you will find to your amazement, when you do come...

Concerning the Word of God

Is place in Heaven: Psalm 119:89.  "Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven."   Its place on Earth: John 18. "I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me and they have received them." Verse 6, "They have kept thy word."   The Bible is inspired: Inspiration is the communication of thoughts to a man’s mind by a power Exterior to and greater than himself.   Are not the w...

This is the True God

The Maker of the Universe, as Man for man was made a curse. The claims of laws which He had made, unto the uttermost He paid. His holy fingers made the bough, where grew the thorns that crowned His brow. The nails that pierced His hands were mined in secret places He designed. He made the forests where there sprung, the tree on which His body hung. He died upon a cross of wood, ye...

The Lord's Music

O Hand Divine! Thy touch must sweep the chords Of this poor heart of mine—then shall I sing The melody within, Thou lov’st to hear, And my whole life shall be one Song of Praise O breathe upon my soul, Thou Breath of God, And wake responsive music! Let me know The blessed converse of a life of prayer— Holian harp notes, breathing soft and low, With love, the sweetest harmony of Heaven Thou who art Love, surpassing highest thought Wilt Thou not call it forth? Savior Di...

Hymn - His be the Victor's Name

No 33 2nd part                         Howard’s Hymn Book 1. His be “the Victor’s name,” Who fought our fight alone; Triumphant saints no honor claim, His conquest was their own. 2. By weakness and defeat, He won the meed and crown; Trod all our foes beneath His feet, By being trodden down. 3. He Hell in hell laid low; Made sin, He Sin o’erthrew; Bow’d to the grave, ...

Hymn - To Look Above

Oh Lord tis joy to look above And see thee on the Throne; To search the heights and depths of Love Which thou to us has shown. To look beyond the long, dark night, And hail the coming day, When Thou to all Thy saints in light Thy glories shall display. ...

A New Fear

"The time is coming when no devout Christian will venture into a sacred edifice for fear of having his faith disturbed." Mr. G.R.S on the Reform. Of course GRS does not understand what FAITH IN CHRIST really is, but he has certainly got hold of the right idea concerning infidelity in the Pulpit. ...

Working for Jesus

Their mother was dead, so little Mary had to look after and be mother to the four younger ones. It took all the father could earn to feed and clothe them. Poor Mary scrubbed and washed and minded, most faithfully, until her slender shoulders began to stoop and her little face grew pale and thin. “I haven’t done anything for Jesus,” she whispered one day to her favorite girl friend, “and when I see Him I won’t know what to say.” “You needn’t say anything,” said the other, kissin...
