"Jesus Calling"

In his autobiography, the late Canon Fleming, by permission of Queen Alexandra, tells of the death of the Duke of Clarence, the elder brother of our late King George. His mother sat by his bedside, when suddenly he looked at her and said, "Who is that calling me?" She answered, "It is Jesus calling you, dear." They were his last words, in a few minutes his soul had passed into eternity. His bereaved mother, turning to a table near the bed upon which his diary was lying, read these words:

"Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come."

"And we could not doubt, " she said, "that dear Eddie had come." And that is the way that all must come, for there is no difference, whether you live as a prince in a royal palace or sleep on the Embankment, all have sinned, and every sinner needs a Saviour, and there is no Saviour except Jesus our Lord. "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name, under heaven, given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12).
