The Veil Will Be Drawn Aside
we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face. 1 Cor. 13:12
There, when the veil that darkens our
vision shall be removed, and our eyes shall behold that world of beauty of which
we now catch glimpses through the microscope; when we look on the glories of
the heavens, now scanned afar through the telescope; when, the blight of sin
removed, the whole earth shall appear "in the beauty of the Lord our

lie down in their last sleep, their lifework seeming to have been wrought in
vain; they know not that their faithfulness has unsealed springs of blessing
that can never cease to flow . . . , and the influence repeat itself a
thousandfold. . . . In the hereafter the action and reaction of all these will
