bring many of these people to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. I impressed them by the fact that as Gentiles, without Christ, they had no way to come to God. When the Lord Jesus Christ came all of this was changed, a new dispensation was de­ clared. “But now in Christ Jesus ye WHY SHOULD I FEAR? (P sa lm 2 7 :1 ) The world is torn with tumult and with strife. And prophets tell of darker days ahead, When hearts of men will throb with fear and dread. But peace, deep peace surrounds my daily life.

FAITH I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea Come drifting home with broken masts and sails; I will believe the Hand which never fails, From seeming evil worketh good for me. And though I weep because those sails are tattered. Still I will cry, while my best h&pes lie shattered; " I trust in Thee." I will not doubt, though all my prayers return Unanswered from the still white realm above; I will believe it is an all-wise love Which has refused these things for which I yearn; For although at times I cannot keep from grieving Yet the pure ardor of my fixed believ- ' ing Undimmed shall burn. I will not doubt, though sorrows fall like rain. And troubles swarm like bees above a hive; I will believe the heights for which I strive Are only reached by anguish and by pain; And though I groan and writhe be­ neath my crosses, I yet shall see through my »severest losses The greatest gain. 1 will not doubt. Well anchored is this faith, Like some staunch ship, my soul braves every gale; So strong its courage that it will not quail To breast the mighty unknown seas of death. O may I cry, though body parts with spirit. " I do not doubt," so listening worlds may hear it With my last breath. * * * Kindness is the language the deaf can hear and the dumb can under­ stand.

For God is here! M y Lord is near! Why should I fear?

On every side new tidings .of alarm Come sweeping in like storm-clouds from the sea; But when the powers of darkness threaten me. M y soul is safely sheltered from all harm.

For God is here! M y Lord is near! Why should I fear?

Deep, deep within my soul I hear His word; "Let not your heart be troubled," nor afraid; Though threat of war against you be arrayed. The triumph will be mine, I am the Lord! — Dr. Albert Simpson Reitz who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ” (Ephe­ sians 2:13). This is the wonderful truth which is ours. How we can rejoice that God did change His dispensation, Now each of us can come to Him by grace through faith and become a son. E ditor ’ s N ote : This study w ill be continued next month on the broad­ casts and here in the BROADCASTER. When God is here, And Christ is near. How can I fear?
