The last words of Charles Haddon Spurgeon

The Voice of C. H. Spurgeon’s Son, Thomas Spurgeon

It is said that while no audios were ever made of C. H. Spurgeon, his son Thomas possessed almost identical voice quality with his famous Dad. Hence Edison-Bell Record company persuaded Thomas Spurgeon to record his father’s last words from the last printed sermon

 

“If you wear the livery of Christ, you will find him so meek and lowly of heart that you will find rest unto your souls. He is the most magnanimous of captains. There never was his like the choicest of princes. He is always to be found in the thickest part of the battle. When the wind blows cold he always takes the bleak side of the hill. The heaviest end of the cross lies ever on his shoulders. If he bids us carry a burden, he carries it also. If there is anything that is gracious, generous, kind, and tender, yea lavish and superabundant in love, you always find it in him. His service is life, peace, and joy. Oh, that you would enter on it at once! God help you to enlist under the banner of JESUS CHRIST!”

  1. I saw on your Facebook that you went to UK. Did you visit any Spurgeon sites?
    I used to read a lot of Spurgeon sermons. Reading that made me want to revisit some of them. I’ve still got his two volume autobiography on my shelf. I’ve never finished it. It’s still got an old bookmark in it from about 15 years ago.

      Hi Kevin,
      Sorry it took me so long to approve your comment. I hardly ever visit my own blog. I got to visit the Metropolitan Tabernacle and also Bunhill fields non conformist cemetery in London which was a real blessing. I would love to visit more Spurgeon sites as well.
