Pristine Grace

This is Comforting
by Augustus Toplady

     A child of God is like a person in a beautiful palace; if there is light in it, he sees the splendid objects around him and enjoys them; but if the light is removed, he is nevertheless in the palace still, and surrounded with the same splendid objects as before, though he cannot see them. So, though the believer’s frames and sensible comforts may have their ebbs and flows, his state, Godward, is invariably the same.
