Four Comforting Words

He remembered suddenly that someone - he rather thought that it was A. P. Herbert of blessed memory - said that he was sustained by four words:

Fear nothing!  Thank God!

The first two words took care of the unknown future.  The last two covered past mercies received.

The rector turned the four words over in his mind, and was strengthened and comforted.
