The merchant kept the affair

She then left the room.
The merchant opened the book

gave me iuto our Bihlg hank,
that when a day of trouble came

"But why put it in the Bible,
“because it is a good hank,

break," replied the lady.

‘That's what He came to do,’ I
said; ‘lie came to save sinners,
and it is’nt by making profession
of good works, but by believing
