There is a place where thou canst touch the eyes Of blinded men to Instant perfect sight; There is a place where thou canst say "Arise" To dying captives bound in chains of might; There is a place where thou canst reach the store Of hoarded gold and free it for the Lord ; There is place upon some distant shore Where thou canst send the worker or the word. There is a place where God's resist less power Responsive moves to thine insistent plea. There is a place ? a simple trusting place ? Where God Himself descends and fights for thee, Where is that blessed place? Dost thou ask where? O soul, it is the secret place of prayer. We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others Judge us by what we have already done. The Holman Gem Testament recently issued, bids fair to rival the Vest Pocket Edition 'of which over a million copies are in circulation) in popularity. Although printed from larger type, it measures 3H x 4H inches, and the Special Ladies' Edition on India paper is only inch thick, including covers. It is the only Testament of its size with either Self-Pronouncing text or bold type. Jfa* Trpt CHAPTER 23.
