For thirty centuries those who havo had earn to hear, anil who havo been willing, when tiie stars shone out, to got away from tho artili ciaily paved and ligliteil town, had their sis uplifted by its thrilling melody. Pd its music is as strong and fair now nTever. Hlesscd be God lor tho twenty third p.snlni! It is in tho evening of life that its mu sic seems tho sweetest. The aged saint, when earth's brightness disappears in tho twilight of liie's declining years, delights to hear it. read by a littte child. then it seems like some echo Ot tllO harmony of Heaven.
