A Welsh lady, when she lay dying, was visited by her minister. He said to her, “Sister, are you sinking?”
She answered him not a word, but looked at him with incredulous eye. He repeated the question, “Sister, are you sinking?”
She looked at him again as if she could not believe he would ask such a question.
At last, rising a little in her bed, she said, “Sinking! Sinking! Did you ever know a sinner to sink through a rock? If I had been standing on the sand, I might sink; but thank God, I'm on the Rock of Ages, and there is no sinking there.”

“Take your stand on the Rock of Ages. Let death, let the judgment come: the victory is Christ's and yours through Him.” - D.L. Moody.
