Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Page 32 - God : to them pertained the adoption ; and the glory ; and the covenants , and the giving of the law : and the service of God ; and the promises : whose were the fathers : and of whom as concerning the flesh, Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever...
Page 8 - And preached, saying, There cometh one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.
