JOHN NEWTON (1)
English divine and hymn writer
(1725 - 1807)

As the wing'd arrow flies
  Speedily the mark to find;
    As the lightning from the skies
      Darts, and leaves no trace behind--
        Swiftly thus our fleeting days
          Bear us down life's rapid stream.
            Upward, Lord, our spirits raise;
              All below is but a dream.
      - [Old Year]

If two angels were sent down from heaven,--one to conduct an empire, and the other to sweep a street,--they would feel no inclination to change employments.
      - [Contentment]

Many have puzzled themselves about the origin of evil; I observe that there is evil, and that there is a way to escape it, and with this I begin and end.
      - [Evil]

The art of spreading rumors may be compared to the art of pin-making. There is usually some truth, which I call the wire; as this passes from hand to hand, one gives it a polish, another a point, others make and put on the head, and at last the pin is completed.
      - [Rumor]

Then let us earnest be,
  And never faint in prayer;
    He loves our importunity,
      And makes our cause His care.
      - [Prayer]

Thus may we abide in union;
  With each other and the Lord,
    And possess in sweet communion
      Joys which earth cannot afford.
      - [Communion]

True zeal is merciful and mild, can pity and forbear.
      - [Zeal]

"When I was young, I was sure of many things; there are only two things of which I am sure now; one is, that I am a miserable sinner; and the other, that Jesus Christ is an all sufficient Saviour." He is well taught who gets these two lessons.
      - [Religion]
