able cement, strongly reinforced with bars of steel. Humanly speaking, they should endure as long as the granite mountains which look down upon our city. But the work of our Institute stands upon an infinitely more enduring foundation than that of these buildings, even upon the eter­ nal truth of God’s Holy Word,—a sure foundation, which can never be shaken nor removed. Upon this foundation it has been building and will continue to build, with the in­ spired assurance that its word shall “abide.” The. inscription upon this corner­ stone, “Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood,” will ever tell to the casual passer-by the sweet, life-giving mes­ sage of the blood, and remind the be­ liever in Christ of God’s great salva­

tion which His infinite wisdom and love devised and provided, as set forth in the wonderful doctrine o f . the blood,—that “the life* * * is in the blood,” and that “it is the blood thqt maketh an atonement for the soul,” “the precious blood” of our Divinely appointed Substitute, upon Whom “the Lord hath laid * * * the iniquity of us all;” that “without the shedding of blood there is no remission” of sins, and that “God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” This is the foundation on which we are building, for “other' foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” Therefore our watch­ word is and ever will be, “Unto Him that loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, * * * to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever.”
