George Muller was born this date, 9/27/1805, near Magdeburg, Germany.  He was converted to Christ (1825) from a wild, sinful, even criminal life, under the ministry of the Moravians.  George began evangelistic work among Jews, children and others.  He came to England (Bristol) and eventually started his famous Faith orphanages.  This work of faith was supported by prayer, obedience, and private gift.  It is said that he (and his many helpers) took care of 10,000 orphans and that at his death (1898) some eight million dollars had passed through his trusting hands.  Only heaven will reveal the wonderful work this man accomplished, relying upon His Savior.

O, for a faith that will not shrink,
Though pressed by every foe,
That will not tremble on the brink
Of any earthly woe!

 That will not murmur nor complain
Beneath the chastening rod,
But, in the hour of grief or pain,
Will lean upon its God.

A faith that shines more bright and clear
When tempests rage without;
That when in danger knows no fear,
In darkness feels no doubt.

 That bears, unmoved, the world’s dread frown
Nor heeds its scornful smile;
That seas of trouble cannot drown,
Nor Satan’s arts beguile.

 A faith that keeps the narrow way
Till life’s last hour is fled,
And with a pure and heavenly ray
Lights up a dying bed.

 Lord, give me such a faith as this,
And then, whate’er may come,
I’ll taste, e’en here, the hallowed bliss
Of an eternal home.
