Learn about The angels – J. Hyde :
I had been reading the Divine words written in the ninety-first Psalm, “He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.” I raised my eyes from the Bible, and fell a-musing. The house was still. All my family had retired to rest, and I was alone in my library. The ticking of the clock made monotonous music, quite in harmony with my slowly moving thoughts. This was the only sound, and it made me conscious how deep was the silence which otherwise reigned about me. The solemn night had passed its meridian; and, perhaps, I was a little wearied with the pleasant labours of an uninterrupted evening spent at my desk. If I was weary, I had no sense of the fatigue ; but felt calmly thoughtful, serenely at my ease. My previous labour of research had been sufficiently rewarded, as my manuscript of notes and extracts shewed; and my work had been very agreeable. I had read the Psalm as my latest duty, and I paused at the verse I have quoted, and mused.
