Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1839 Excerpt: ...behold sights that would appal us, and hear sounds which would fill us with dismay.

And if our enemies be many and mighty, yet, as an old writer has quaintly but forcibly observed, " One Almighty is more than many mightiest We are exhorted to " be strong," not in our own might, but " in the Lord, and in the power of his might." "The Lord of Hosts is with us, the God of Jacob is our refuge." The powers of darkness may rage; Satan may put forth his malice, his cunning, and his might, to overpower us; but "if God be with us, who can be against us?" Brethren, there is unspeakable comfort to the C...
