How easily God can terrify the godless. The infidel boasted loudly as he and two Christians debated while they drifted down the river and neared Niagara. But when awakened to the danger he cried to God for help, and afterwards owned that, while infidelity may not be a bad thing with which to drift down the river, it is a very bad thing with which to go over the falls. That man was in time to cry to God, but Belshazzar's pale face, troubled mind, and shaking knees availed nothing now. Oh, it is an awful hour when a hardened sinner as life closes awakes to his fearful state, but too late to find mercy.
