• This is a true saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, whereof I am chief.' O most sweet and comfortable sentence to my soul! This one sentence, through God's instruction and inward working, did so exbilarate my heart, which before was wounded with the guilt of my sins,..... that immediately I found comfort and quietness in my soul, so that my bruised bones leaped for joy.” “ You are now,” said Oxensteirn, the celebrated statesman of Sweden, to one of our own countrymen—"you are now in the prime of your age and vigour, and in great favour and business ; but all these will leave you, and you will one day better understand and relish what I say ; and then you will find that there is more wisdom, truth, comfort, and pleasure in retiring and turning your heart from the world to the good Spirit of God, and in the reading of the Bible, than in all courts and favours of princes." Yes ;-our blessed Lord will not fail us ;-He will be with us, by His Word and by His Spirit, in every state and under all circumstances of life ;—will be our Guide even unto death ;--and after death, receive us unto Himself, to dwell with Him for ever in those heavenly
mansions prepared from the foundation of the world for those who love Him.

Turn their eyes hither, who shall make a gain;
