PREFACE.

In visiting the Sick I have often felt how helpful would be a book written especially for their use, containing Meditations on words of Holy Scripture, together with appropriate Prayers and Hymns.

At a time when even “the grasshopper is a burden,” the task of reference is painful ; and an Invalid shrinks from a large book, or pages printed in small type. Moreover, in weakness and weariness, it is comforting to have thoughts of peace suggested to us; to be supplied, as it were, with the very voice of one's own feelings.

I humbly hope that the following pages may prove a help and comfort to some whom God

would educate in the School of Affliction. May my readers learn more and more, as they are called to endure God's discipline, to trust in His Word, to love His peace, and to glorify His

Name.
