• “My soul remained in a kind of heavenly elysium. So far as I am capable of making a comparison, I think that what I felt each minute, during the continuance of the whole time, was worth more than all the outward comfort and pleasure, which I had enjoyed in my whole life put together. It was a pure delight, which fed and satisfied the soul. It was peasure, without the least sting, or any interruption. It was a sweetness, which my soul was lost in. It seemed to be all that my feeble frame could sustain, of that fulness of joy, which is felt by those, who behold the face of Christ, and share his love in the heavenly world.” – Sarah Edwards, wife of Jonathan Edwards

This Revelation by Phoebe Palmer

This Revelation — holy, just, and true—

Though oft I read, it seems forever new ;

While light from Heaven upon its pages rest,

I feel its power, and with it I am blest.


Within its leaves, it grace divine displays,
Makes known the Almighty’s will, in various ways ;
Justice, it speaks, to those who heaven defy,
And with ungracious lips its truths deny.


‘Tis here the wearied one, in sin’s rough road,
May find the path mark’d out that leads to God,
And when oppressed by earth, all here may find
Sweet promises of peace to cheer the mind.


To this blest treasure, O my soul, attend,
Here find a firm and everlasting friend —
A friend in all life’s varied changes sure,
Which shall to all eternity endure.


Henceforth, I take thee as my future guide,
Let naught from thee my youthful heart divide
And then, if late or early death be mine.
All will be well, since I, O Lord, am thine!
