I Come Quickly

"Surely, I came quickly." These are His last words, and while they die away upon the ear, the Spirit in the Church takes them up and responds, "Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus." 0 that this were but the language of our hearts! If it were so, how loosely should we sit to the world! How superior to its charms! How should we look down upon all its gilded pageant scenes, yearning indeed in sorrow over the giddy multitude, beguiled by them on the way to death!
