That Great Day

It is a great thing to die; and, when flesh and heart fail, to have God for the strength of our heart, and our portion forever.  I know whom I have believed, and he is able to keep that which I have committed against that great day.  Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me that day.

– John Newton
