Charles Spurgeon’s Letters-Letter 177

WORDS OF SYMPATHY

To [Rev. Thomas Curme.]

WESTWOOD, June 12, 1884.

DEAR FRIEND, —

I casually heard from Mr. Abraham that you were in, but I had no idea that it was a serious matter; but Mr. Rochfort has kindly given me further news.

I feel very sad about it, but I am sure you do not. The loss will be ours, and Heaven and you will gain.

Dear loving brother, you have nothing now to do but to go home; and what a home! You will be quite at home where all is love, for you have lived in that blessed element, and are filled with it. I shall soon come hobbling after you, and shall find you out. We are bound to gravitate to each other whether here or in glory. We love the same Lord, and the same blessed truth.

May the everlasting arms be underneath you! I breathe for you a loving, tender prayer, — “ Lord, comfort Thy dear servant, and when he departs, may it be across a dried-up river into the land of living fountains!”

I am fifty next Thursday, and you are near your Jubilee. In this we are alike; but Jesus is the highest joy. Into the Father’s hands I commit you, “until the day break, and the shadows flee away.”

Your loving brother,

C. H. SPURGEON.
