THE Spirit breathes upon the Word,
And brings the truth to sight:
Precepts and promises afford
A sanctifying light.
A glory gilds the sacred page,
Majestic like the sun;
It gives a light to every age;
It gives, but borrows none.
IN the Bible there is more that finds me than I have experienced in all other books put together; the words of the Bible find me at greater depths of my being; and whatever finds me brings with it an irresistible evidence of its having proceeded from the Holy Spirit.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
“BRING the Book,” said Sir Walter Scott, when dying. “What book?” asked his friend. “There is only one Book—the Bible,” replied the dying man.
SOMETIMES in reading of the Word, God makes a man stay on something that cuts him to the heart, and shakes him as to his present condition.
