Welcome to "Quaint Words!"
These posts will contain thoughts, poems, and prayers from old books that I have found at antique stores, flea markets, and garage sales (with an occasional treasure from a bookstore).
I love the rhythm and sound of the older English language, and am blessed by other believers who have gone before me!
"'In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I cried for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears.' (Psalm 18:6)
O that Bethesda's God may make this day, though but a day of small things, productive of great things to the souls of all who hear...
Look, look to him, all who live in these ends of the earth...Come to him all you who are weary and heavy laden, and he will give you rest.
He will give you rest from the guilt, rest from the power, rest from the punishment of sin; he will give rest from the fear of divine judgments here, and rest with himself eternally hereafter.
Fear not, though your beginnings are but small, Christ will not despise the day of small things. A bruised reed will he not break, and the smoking flax he will not quench, until he bring forth judgment unto victory.
His hands that laid the foundation shall finish it; yet a little while and the top-stone shall be brought forth with shouting."
