Excerpt from The Contemplations and Letters of Henry Dorney, of Uley, Gloucestershire
While the breaking disquietudes of my heart do thus twist themselves together, and a variety of temptations, bur dens, convictions, lusts of the ﬂesh, groans, fears, and pant ings, do all strive within me as the seat of exercise there seems to appear the twinkling of a refuge, a morning-star, Salvation for sinners, and perfect redemption; the vile body shall yet be made glorious, sins be blotted out, and everlasting righteousness brought in. This is good news; but how shall such a blessedness be obtained? The Lion of the tribe of Judah has prevailed, and undertaken the work of complete redemption, on behalf of poor, weary, miserable, imprisoned souls, in his own person, where all salvation lies; for there is no other name under heaven, whereby a wretched sinner can be saved. Acts iv. 12.
