While on the way to England with Mr. Moody in 1873, one day in mid-ocean, as I was looking over a list of hymns in my scrap-book, I noticed one commencing, ”Come every soul by sin oppressed, ”written by the Rev. John Stockton, with the familiar chorus,
Come to Jesus,
Come to Jesus just now.”
I will trust Him,
I will trust Him just now."
“I am much interested in sacred songs, ”writes a missionary in England, ”because it was the first verse of' Only trust Him ' that opened the door of my heart to let the Master into my soul in all his fullness. I was in the army, and found my way to the Woolwich Soldiers' Home, where I heard the Gospel; and for a fortnight I was groping in the dark for peace, when one evening I heard the singing of 'Only trust Him,' which brought light into my soul. I have ever since been happy, serving Him with my whole heart. I am now a missionary to my comrades."
