that no man can number Being compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses On the first elevation of the ancient amphitheater on the day cf a ccloW oration sat fiberlh or Augustus or the reigning king So in the great arena of spectators that watch our struggles and in time first divine gallery as 1 shall call it sits our King one Jesus On his head are many crowns The Roman emperor got his place by coldblooded conquests but our King hath come to His phieeby the broken hearts healed and the tears wiped+ away and the aouls redeemed The Roman emperor set with folded arms indifferent as to whether the swordsman or the lion bent put our Kings sympathies are all with us nay unheard of condescension 1 see Him come down from the gallery into the arena to help us in the fight shout j

deliver us Blessed are they who put their trust in Him I look again and I see the angelic gallery There they are the angel that swung the sword at the gate of- Eden j upholding which I look away for the splendor is insufferable Here are the guardian angels That one watched a patriarch haskbeen pulling a sail out of temptation i All these are messengers of HU t Those drove the Spanish armada on the rocks This turned Sennacheribs j living host into n heap of 155000 corpses Those yonder chanted the Christmas carol over Bethlehem until the chant awoke the shepherds These at creation stood in

but this one is leader of thcfSO 000 chariots of God and of the 10000 times 10000 angels I think God gives command to the archangel and the archangel to the seraphim and the seraphim to the cherubim

beforge swinging from the bedpost in perfect glee at the thought of emancipation Who is that army of 6666 They ar the Theban legion who died for th faith Here is a larger host in mag nificent array 834000 who perished for Christ in the persecutions o Diocletian Yonder is a family group Felicitas of Rome and her children While they were dying for the fah she stood encouraging them One son was whipped to death by thorns another was flung from a rock an other was beheaded At last tho mother became a martyr There they are together a family group in heaven Yonder is John Bradford who said in the fire We shall have a merry supper with the Lord tonight Yonder is Henry Voes who exclaimed as he died If I ten heads they should all fall off for Christ The great throng of the martyrs They had hot lead poured down thejiiroats horses were fas toned to their hands and other purse ito their feet and thus they were pulled apart they had their tongues pulled out by redhot pinchers they were sewed tip in the skins of animals and then thrown to the dogs they were daubed with combustibles and set on fire If all the martyrs stakes that have been kindled couldI be set at proper distances they would matte the midnight all the world over bright as noonday And now theysit yonder in the martyrs gallery For them the fires of perse cution have gone out the swords arc sheathed and the mob hushed Now they watch us with an all observing sympathy They know all time pain all the hardship all the anguish all the injustice all the privation They cannot keep still They cry Cour age The fire will not copsume the floods cannot drown the lions can not devour Courage down there in the arena I look again and I see another gal llerthat of eminent Christians I What strikes me strangely is the I mixing
