Charles Spurgeon’s Last Words Recited by his Son Thomas Spurgeon
It is said that while no audios were ever made of C. H. Spurgeon, his son Thomas possessed almost identical voice quality with his famous Dad. Hence Edison-Bell Record company persuaded Thomas Spurgeon to record his father’s last words from the last printed sermon
C. H. Spurgeon’s last words, the Metropolitan Tabernacle, June 7, 1891, recited by his son and successor, Thomas Spurgeon, Edison-Bell Records.
It is cause for real regret that none of my late, dear father’s words were preserved by means of the phonograph. Perhaps the next best thing is for me, his son and successor, to repeat what proved to be his passing message. It should not be less forceful now, fourteen years after its delivery, for the truth of God is unchanging.
If you wear the livery of Christ, you will find him so meek and lowly of heart that you will find rest unto your souls.
He is the most magnanimous of captains.
There never was his like the choicest of princes.
He is always to be found in the thickest part of the battle.
When the wind blows cold he always takes the bleak side of the hill.
The heaviest end of the cross lies ever on his shoulders.
If he bids us carry a burden, he carries it also.
If there is anything that is gracious, generous, kind, and tender, yea lavish and superabundant in love, you always find it in him.
His service is life, peace, and joy.
Oh, that you would enter on it at once!
God help you to enlist under the banner of JESUS CHRIST!
