I am resolved no longer to linger,
Charmed by the world’s delight,
Things that are higher, things that are nobler,
These have allured my sight.

Refrain

I will hasten to Him, hasten so glad and free;
Jesus, greatest, highest, I will come to Thee.
I will hasten, hasten to Him, hasten so glad and free;
Jesus, Jesus, greatest, highest, I will come to Thee.

I am resolved to go to the Savior,
Leaving my sin and strife;
He is the true One, He is the just One,
He hath the words of life.

I am resolved to follow the Savior,
Faithful and true each day;
Heed what He sayeth, do what He willeth,
He is the living Way.

I am resolved to enter the kingdom
Leaving the paths of sin;
Friends may oppose me, foes may beset me,
Still will I enter in.

I am resolved, and who will go with me?
Come, friends, without delay,
Taught by the Bible, led by the Spirit,
We’ll walk the heav’nly way.

Heaven…is a condition, a state of the heart no less than a place.

                A. M. Hills, Dying to Live (Cincinnati: God’s Revivalist Office, 1905), 39.

 

There is a post of duty for every man in the army of the Lord, which he alone can fill, and which he has no right to abandon; nay cannot abandon to another.

                A. M. Hills, Dying to Live (Cincinnati: God’s Revivalist Office, 1905), 99.

 

Deacon Stephen and Deacon Philip were as anxious and laborious to secure the conversion of people as were the Apostles Peter and James.

                A. M. Hills, Dying to Live (Cincinnati: God’s Revivalist Office, 1905), 103.

 

Man is too godlike in his origin, too glorious in his destiny, to waste himself in a career of sin.

Every soul that is ever damned, some time resists the Holy Ghost for the last time.

Upon a tree with serrated leaf, I found,

A fresh nut growing, smooth and round.

It had grown all summer, at its best,

But September still found it far from rest.

Its shape was right, its form – “No sweat.”

But maturity it was striving for, and

Hadn’t reached there yet.

Its size told that, a little small,

Give it time, “Rome wasn’t built in a fall.”

Its color also revealed its youth,

Now don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t uncouth.

It just lacked the brown of Autumn’s tone,

The pastel acorns claim for their own.

I’m sure given time it will be just right,

Big, full-fruited, sealed “Tupperware”-tight,

Grown-up color, maturity’s stroke,

The future, miniature, enduring oak.

But this morning, it’s not ready for all that,

Growing feet above the forest floor mat.

This morning it’s ready to be youthful and green,

To stick by its place and flourish unseen.

 

I’ve expressed in part what I felt to tell,

Youth to maturity – in a nutshell. 

                                       Farewell.     

 – eab, 9/76

 Written while I working with Christ Church – Bible Methodist, Christ College and Christ Academy in Friendsville, TN, but on a visit to Cincinnati.

MY  SON

He is little and small,

Maybe two feet tall.

The hair is blond on his head;

That’s not brown, but its better than red.

 

He doesn’t talk yet, not very much,

‘Course, that doesn’t make him easy to hush.

His legs are bowed a little bad,

But that just makes him like his dad.

 

He has some ways that are pretty cute;

One each occasion to suite.

He’s always playing, on the run;

He’s a fine boy.  He’s my son!

                – eab ’65 DEC

 E. Andrew Bryan II was born this date, 7/29/1964 in Cincinnati, Ohio.  He and his family live in Alaska.
