“I have thought I am a creature of a day, passing through life as an arrow through the air.
I am a spirit come from God, and returning to God, just hovering over the great gulf, till a few moments hence, I am no more seen; I drop into an unchangeable eternity!
I want to know one thing—the way to heaven, how to land safe on that happy shore. God himself has condescended to teach the way; for this very end He came from heaven.
He has written it down in a book. O give me that Book at any price,
give me the Book of God”
