He found it in the prison house of the devil

(Henry Law, "Psalms" 1878)

"Come and hear, all you who fear God,
 and I will declare what He has done for
 my soul." Psalm 66:16

Of what did the Psalmist speak?

Of all that God had done for his soul.

Oh! the breadth and length, the depth and
height, of this most marvelous declaration!

He visited his soul in darkness,
and gave the light of life!

He found it in the prison house of the
devil
, and translated it into the kingdom
of grace and glory!

He saw it laden with all iniquities,
and removed the total burden!

He saw it filthy in all the mire of evil,
and clothed it with the garments of
righteousness and salvation!

Such is the theme of the believer's story;
but heaven must be reached and eternity
exhausted, before the whole can be told.
