William Sangster, the great preacher, was terminally ill with cancer. He could get about but could not speak. One Easter Sunday morning, he seemed especially despondent. Finally he wrote on his pad: "What tragedy! Resurrection Lord's Day and no voice with which to praise my great Redeemer's name." Then he sat dejectedly gazing out the window. Finally, he wrote again: "There is only one thing more tragic to have a voice and fail to praise the great Redeemer's Name." - J. Michael Shannon.
