Beloved, soon, O how soon! all that now
loads the heart with care, and wrings it with sorrow;
all that dims the eye with tears, and renders the
day anxious and the night sleepless, will be as
though it had never been!
the loneliness, and
the temptations of the wilderness,
you shall enter upon your everlasting rest,
your unfading inheritance, where there is....
no evening shadows,
no midnight darkness,
but all is one perfect, cloudless, eternal day, for
JESUS is the joy, the light, and the glory thereof!
"And now, all glory to God, who is able to keep
you from stumbling, and who will bring you into
His glorious presence innocent of sin and with
great joy! All glory to Him, who alone is God our
Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Yes, glory,
majesty, power, and authority belong to Him, in
the beginning, now, and forevermore! Amen."
from Winslow's, "The Lord, the Keeper of His People"
