Jesus Christ saves sinners;

Sinners only does He save.

He can heal the broken hearted,

Raise the dead up from the grave,

The great Messiah of the skies

Restores sight to blinded eyes.

But He only touches them,

That realize that they need Him.  –eab, 3/’72

We’ve missed something, who missed the age,

When horse, or horse and carriage, were the rage.

Be he black or white or shades of beige

(This main convenience oe’r stone and sage)

He/she had a beating heart in their ribcage

(not merely wheels, gears, and occasional gauge)

True, driven or not they needed their oaty “wage”

And you arrived in town at a slower stage

But Wesley (and others) astride, read many a page.

Ah,  We’ve missed something, who missed that age. -eab, 3/18/08

“O Happy Day”  (stanza 4)

Now rest, my long divided heart,
Fixed on this blissful center, rest.
Here have I found a nobler part;
Here heavenly pleasures fill my breast.

Philip Doddridge, D.D. Aberdeen University, 1736, died 10/26/1751

The mighty oak from an acorn came,

Bursting, throbbing, growing in strain;

Pulled up by the light, pushed up by the rain.

It didn’t happen over night.

 

No stalwart man is instant made.

It takes pressure, decisions, days of shade;

Pulled up by prayer, pushed by reading, rare.

Small souls and fires quickly fade.  -eab, 9/75

“Now, a man with a fixed heart is not only natural, but he is as bold as a lion; he neither fears men nor devils. He now has the courage of his conviction; he will wash out his mouth, and tear off his lodge pin, and vote the Prohibition ticket. Even if he knows that the man that he voted for would not be elected, he would rather vote for a cleanProhi­bitionist and get defeated in the election than to vote for a rum seller and elect him, and you would, too, if you are natural and bold.”

 

– Bud Robinson, Honey in the Rock (Cincinnati: God’s Revivalist Press, 1913), 103.

 

Underlining mine.  You can remove “Prohi­bitionist,” “rum seller” in the above and apply it to the 21st century.  THINK ABOUT it.  Must we always vote for the lesser of too evils?  (Too is purposely here.)
