heads in peace; 'For blessed are the dead that die in the Lord, they rest from their labours, and their works will follow them.'

O Friends, come unto Christ that you may have life, and have it abundantly: He is the living fountain that God hath vouchsafed to open to us, even the fountain of living water, for the refreshment of thirsty souls; and the bread that comes down from heaven, for filling and satisfying the hungry soul. Blessed are they that know Christ to be their Shepherd, and hear his voice, and follow him, who will go before them as their light and leader, and give them eternal life. They shall receive from him in this life food convenient; he will make them lie down in green pastures, and lead them by the still waters, and he will prepare a table before them in the midst of their enemies, and satisfy them as with marrow and fatness, and make them triumph in his love and praise. Let us travel on in the path of life, in the ways of righteousness, without fainting, and labour to answer the great end of our creation, and the design of God's love in our redemption, and let us live as witnesses for God in our own generation. But some may say, What do we witness? I witness to God's judge ment for my sin, and to his mercy in forgiving my sin, and to bis good Spirit visiting my soul, and sanctifying me, and making me free from the law of sin and death; and I witness (may a sincere and humble soul say) a freedom and deliverance from the bondage of corruption, and power and victory over the world, and the flesh and the devil, the grand enemy of my salvation. O that you may all experience these great things in your own souls! Then Christ will say unto every one of you, Well done, good and faithful servant, thou hast been faithful in a little, I will make thee ruler over much. The joy of the Lord shall enter now into thee, and thou shalt hereafter enter into the joy of thy Lord; thou shalt then behold bis face in righteousness, and be eternally satisfied with bis likeness : 'In whose presence is fulness of joy, and at whose right hand are pleasures for evermore.'
