It was my privilege to visit Brother
Crisp several times during bis faw
months resilience in Newberry, I al
ways found him appreciative. As Cod'a
word was read he would listen atten
tively. Just a lew hours I) -fore he
passed away, as some passages were
being read, he said: "I have read that
before, and ii has comforted mo."
He had no fear of the beyond, for said
he, "I have made preparation lor that;
the only thing I dread la the sting of
death." But when the end came there
was no sting, and he fell asleep in
"Servant of God, well done:
Rest from thy loved employ.
The battle fought, the vict'ry won,
Enter thy Master's joy.
The pains of death are past,
Labor and sorrow cease;
And life's long warfare closed at last
His soul Is found in peace.
Soldier of Christ, well done.
Praise by thy new employ;
And while eternal ages run
Rest in thy Saviour's joy."
