This was brought to my attention by a dear sister in Christ, this is such a blessing....
The Anvil of God's Word - (John Clifford)
"Last eve I paused beside the blacksmith's door,
And I heard the anvil ring the vesper chime;
Then looking in, I saw upon the floor,
Old hammers worn with beating years of time.
How many anvils have you had, said I,
To wear and batter all these hammers so?
Just one, said he and then with twinkling eye,
The anvil wears the hammers out, you know.
And so, I thought, The Anvil of God's Word,
For ages skeptic blows have beat upon, Yet,
through the noise of falling blows was heard
The Anvil is unchanged, the hammers gone."
