"Touch of the Master’s Hand,"


T’was battered and scarred, and the auctioneer
Thought it scarcely worth his while
To waste much time on the old violin,
But held it up with a smile.


" What am I bidden, good folks," he cried,
" Who’ll start the bidding for me?"
" A dollar, a dollar," then, two! Only two?
" Two dollars, and who’ll make it three?


" Three dollars, once; three dollars, twice;
Going for three . . . "But no,
From the room, far back, a grey haired man
Came forward and picked up the bow;


Then, wiping the dust from the old violin,
And tightening the loose strings,
He played a melody pure and sweet
As a caroling angel sings.


The music ceased, and the auctioneer,
With a voice that was quiet and low,
Said: "What am I bid for the old violin?"
And he held it up with the bow.


" A thousand dollars, and who’ll make it two?
Two thousand! And who’ll make it three?
Three thousand, once; three thousand, twice;
And going and gone," said he.


The people cheered, but some of them cried,
" We do not quite understand
What changed its worth?" Swift came the reply:
" The touch of a master’s hand."


And many a man with life out of tune,
And battered and scarred with sin,
Is auctioned cheap to the thoughtless crowd,
Much like the old violin.


A "mess of potage," a glass of wine;
A game, and he travels on.
He is "going" once, and "going" twice,
He’s "going" and almost "gone."


But the Master comes and the foolish crowd
Never can quite understand
The worth of a soul and the change that’s wrought
By the touch of the Master’s hand

WARNING: TO ALL UNSAVED
AND CHRISTIANS

THE LORD IS COMING!

BE READY WHO SAID SO? BE READY
CHRIST Himself - “… I will come again…” John 14:3
ANGELS said it - “ This same Jesus shall … come in
like manner…” Acts 1:11
PAUL taught it - “..the Lord himself shall descend from
heaven…” I Thess.4:16

HE IS COMING QUICKLY
God’s Word closes with this three-fold message to all
(Rev.22:7,12,20)
“Behold, I come quickly:”
“Behold, I come quickly;”
“Surely I come quickly.”

HE IS COMING SUDDENLY
For some - “...as a thief in the night.” I Thess.5:2
For others- “Lest coming suddenly he find you
sleeping.” Mark 13:36
For all (the saved) - “… in the twinkling of an eye…”
I Cor.15:52

HE IS COMING FOR HIS OWN
I Thess.4:16,17 - “… a shout… the voice.. The trump
of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise
first: Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together… to meet the
Lord in the air…”
Phil.3:21 - “...shall change our vile body… like unto
his glorious body…”
I John 3:2 - “… we shall be like him; for we shall see him
as he is.”

HE WANTS YOU TO BE READY!
Mark 13:33 - “Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not
when the time is.”
