Seite 192 - Christ who redeemed your soul from hell, and died for you.' -After the sound had acted on his organs of hearing, and he had connected perhaps some ideas with it, tears began to flow from the dead man's eyes.

Seite 243 - Now I further saw, that betwixt them and the gate was a river ; but there was no bridge to go over ; and the river was very deep.
