About this title

Synopsis:

Places associated with great minds are always interesting. What a halo of moral grandeur must ever be thrown around that spot which was hallowed above all others by the Lord of glory as the scene of His most cherished earthly friendship! However holy be the memories which encircle other localities trodden by Him in the days of His flesh-Bethlehem, with its manger cradle, its mystic star, and adoring cherubim-Nazareth, the nurturing home of His youthful affections-Tiberias, whose shores so often echoed to His footfall, or whose waters in stillness or in storm bore Him on their bosom-the crested heights where He uttered His beatitudes-the midnight mountains where He prayed-the garden where He suffered-the hill where He died-there is no one single resort in His divine pilgrimage on which sanctified thought loves so fondly to dwell as on the home and village of BETHANY.

About the Author:

Macduff, John Ross, D.D., second son of Alexander Macduff, of Bonhard, near Perth, was born at Bonhard, May 23, 1818. After studying at the University of Edinburgh, he became in 1842 parish minister of Kettins, Forfarshire, in 1849 of St. Madoes, Perthshire, and in 1855 of Sandyford, Glasgow. He received the degree of D.D. from the University of Glasgow in 1862, and about the same time also from the University of New York. He retired from pastoral work in 1871, lived at Chislehurst, Kent and died in 1887. He has published many practical and devotional works which have attained a wide circulation. In 1857 he was appointed by the General Assembly a member of their Hymnal Committee. His 31 hymns appeared in his Altar Stones, 1853, and were also included with his later poems in his The Gates of Praise, 1876. Of these hymns the following are in common use.:— 1. Christ Is coming! Let creation. Second Advent. 2. Eternal Rock! To Thee I flee. (1853.) Christ the Rock. 3. Everlasting arms of love. (1853.) Support in Christ. 4. From Thy habitation holy. Whitsuntide. I 5. Hasten, Lord, that morn of glory. Second Advent. 6. Jesus wept! Those tears are over. (1853.) The raising of Lazarus. 7. O do not, blessed Lord, depart. Christ's presence desired. 8. Where shall I look for holy calm. (1853.) Passiontide. 9. Why should I murmur or repine? Resignation. Of these hymns those dated 1953 are parts only of Dr. Macduff’s originals. [Rev. James Mearns, M.A.]
