    "Let my cry come near before thee, O LORD: give me understanding according to thy word." There is no other Glad Tidings than that which was first entrusted to the Saints; and there is no way to make it easier and more comfortable for men, than that which the Lord prescribed; which is "except the corn of wheat go into the ground and die, it abides alone; but if it die, it brings forth much fruit."
