Page 15 - It was for me that Jesus died ! for me, and a world of men Just as sinful and just as slow to give back His love again...
Page 10 - ... hearts I healed, and the tears that I wiped away. I thought for myself and I wrought for myself — for myself, and none beside: Just as if Jesus had never lived, as if He had never died. But since my Lord has looked on me, and since He has bid me look Once on my heart and once on my life and once on His blessed Book, And once on the cross where He died for me, He has taught me that I must mend, If I'd have Him to be my Saviour, and keep Him to be my Friend.

Page 27 - He didn't come to judge the world, He didn't come to blame, He didn't only come to seek; it was to save He came; And when we call Him Saviour, then we call Him by His name.
Page 7 - I'd keep, if I'd only one to choose, Is the gift of a broken and contrite heart, — and that He will not refuse. For what is my wish and what is my hope, when I've toiled and prayed and striven, All the days that I live upon earth ? It is this — to be forgiven. And what is my wish and what is my hope, but to end where I begin, With an eye that looks to my Saviour, and a heart that mourns for its sin ! Well, perhaps you think I...
Page 8 - I've nothing to do with other folks — it isn't for me to say What sort of men the Scribes might be, or the Pharisees in thoir day ; But we know that it wasn't for such as they that the Kingdom of Heaven was meant, And we're told we shall likewise perish unless we do repent.
