ADDRESS AT PLEASANT VIEW, JUNE, 1903



   Beloved Brethren: - Welcome home!  To your home
in my heart!  Welcome to Pleasant View, but not
to varying views.  I would present a gift to you
to-day, only that this gift is already yours.  God hath
given it to all mankind.  It is His coin, His currency;
it has His image and superscription.  This gift is a
passage of Scripture; it is my sacred motto, and it
reads thus: -
   "Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell
in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.  Delight thyself
also in the Lord; and He shall give thee the desires of thine
heart.  Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in
Him; and He shall bring it to pass.  And He shall bring
forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment
as the noonday."
   Beloved, some of you have come long distances to kneel
with us in sacred silence in blest communion - unity of
faith, understanding, prayer, and praise - and to return
in joy, bearing your sheaves with you.  In parting I

MY 171


repeat to these dear members of my church: Trust in
Truth, and have no other trusts.
   To-day is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: "And the
ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion
with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads:  they
shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing
shall flee away."
