    PRAYER   Table of Contents     MEDITATION VI

Stewart, Maria.



I have been contemplating that if we live pure and virtuous lives here, when we come upon the bed of death, we shall be enabled to lean our head upon the bosom of Jesus, and to breathe our souls out sweetly there. He will safely carry us through the dark valley and the shadow of death, and angels will convey us to heaven. There we shall sit down with Abraham, and Issac, and Jacob, and with the spirits of just men made perfect. There the Lord God will wipe away tears from all our faces, and we shall join with the hundred and forty-four thousand, in singing the song of Moses and the Lamb:

Worthy the Lamb that died, they cry,
To be exalted thus!
Worthy the Lamb, our lips reply,
For he was slain for us!

My Christian friends, let us examine ourselves, and pray for peace of conscience, joy in the Holy Ghost, increase of grace, and perseverance there unto the end.
