Harford), who has been more than a brother to me, I beg to record my

obligations.

From them I learned what true Protestant Christianity really is, and

now" I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power of

God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and

also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed

from faith unto faith; as it is written, The just shall live by faith."

Cujusvis hominis est errare, says Cicero ; nullius nisi insipientis perseverare

in errore. "Any man may err; but no one but a fool will

persevere in his error."

THIRSTING AFTER JESUS.

ERE eaeh morning breaketh,

I would see Thy face,

Jesus! precious Saviour!

Jesus! King of Grace!

For my thirsty spirit

Longs to drink again

Of the living river

Flowing through this plain.

Hark! how sweet its music,

As it dashes by,

Clear and fresh as ever

In its melody.

From the crystal city,

From the throne on high,

It has lea.ped to succour

Sinners lest they die!

Flowing where the desert

Looks most parched and bare,

There its shining wavelets

Sparkle ev'rywhere!

We. with dying thousands,

Would again partake

Of this crystal river,

It our thirst can slake.

It the drooping pastures

Can refresh and bless,

And with fragrant blossoms

Clothe the wilderness !

Oh! Thou living Spirit,

Give us of Thy dew,

Then our souls, like gardens,

Will yield fruit anew!

THE LATE REV. W. PENNEFATHER.
