How to Be a Soul

He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing
precious seed, shall doubtless come
again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves
with him.
Psalm 126:6
The Urgency of Soul
Could a mariner sit idle
if he heard the drowning cry?
Could a doctor sit in comfort
and just let his patients die?
Could a fireman sit idle,
let men burn and give no hand?
Can you sit at ease in Zion
with the world around you

- Leonard Ravenhill
