and that it was pleasant to the eyes,

and a tree to be desired to make one wise,

J M Pike quote

“Holiness means pure thoughts, pure intentions,

pure motives, pure words, pure actions.

It is the purity of heaven brought down to earth

…exhibited in a pure life.”

– J M Pike, from the book The Double Cure (reprinted by H E Schmul)

I’ll go where You want me to go dear Lord!

But – I just can’t testify,

The other students know my life,

All the problems I cause and the strife,

It might sound to them like a lie.


I’ll go where You want me to go dear Lord!

But – please, Lord, not next door.

For the last time I was there,

I got mad and kicked a chair,

I don’t feel comfortable there anymore.


I’ll go where You want me to go dear Lord!

I’d just love to dress like that,

And make jungle trails and a hut.

But mowing the church lawn is a rut;

Let the preacher do it; he’s getting fat.

– eab, Mar. ’76
