Dear Fellow Believers
While reading an old book I came across the following and thought to share it.
Gospel Hall, Deans
Upon the back of a 1 pound note (pre-decimal) someone had penned these lines:
This piece of paper in your hand
Declares to you that on demand
You twenty shillings will recieve;
That simple promise you believe.
It puts your mind as much at rest
As if the silver you possessed.
So Christ who died but now doth live
Doth unto you the promise give
That, if in Him you will believe,
You shall eternal life recieve.
Upon the first you calmly rest.
Which is the safer? Which the best?
The bank may fail: Heaven never can;
'Tis safer to trust in God than man.
