Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1889 edition. Excerpt: ...Word! MARY A. LATHBURY. En notfjt'nu tentfieti bg gout atibersaries.--Phil. i. 28. But there shall not a hair of your head perish.--Luke xxi. 18.

Our Lord has not promised exemption from all violence of evil men, on the contrary has bidden us look for it; but he promises his blessed presence and a safety higher and more enduring. They that suffer with him shall succeed. His tried ones shall triumph. His slain shall survive. Followers of the Lamb shall reign forever with him. How are thy servants blest, O Lord! How sure is their defence! Eternal wisdom is their guide, Their help, omnipotence. Joseph Addison. Che 3Loro fjatlj lafb on fjtm tfje mtquitg of m all. Isaiah Hii. 6.
