" I have seen Jacob's Ladder,
and found the way of my feet ordered
by the Sovereignty of Him that sits on the Throne
and the Angels of the Throne still minister.
Age sees farther back than youth,
and has many proofs of the Lord's leading.
The end and the beginning belong to the same road."
The untrodden road of the New Year runs through unpossessed and holding yet unknown treasures. Go in and possess them. Like the Israelites of old, we must go in and 'take the land'.
Wherever the untrodden road may lead,
two things to the pilgrim are sure:
the Presence of our Lord
and the sufficiency of His grace.
Whether it be through the plain of the wilderness,
the deeps of the valley,
or over the mountain top,
He will lead, sustain, and cheer.
So onward Pilgrims! May we be heard only by our singing!
