Little Bilney of Cambridge

THOMAS BILNEY, familiarly known as "Little
       Bilney,"
as a student at Cambridge longed for peace,
and found it not till he got hold of the New Testament
translated by Erasmus.   Then he said:
   "I bought the book, being drawn thereto rather by the
Latin than by the Word of God, for at that time I knew
not what the Word of God meant.   And, on the first
reading of it, as I well remember, I chanced upon these
words, This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all accepta-
tion, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners;
of whom I am chief
(1 Tim. 1. 15).   That one sentence,
through God's inward working, did so lift up my poor
bruised spirit that the very bones within me leaped for
joy and gladness.   It was as if, after a long, dark night,
day had suddenly broke!"

   It became a burden on his soul to win HUGH LATIMER
a popular father at that time.   He prayed: "O God, I am
but little Bilney, and shall never do any great thing for
Thee; but give me the soul of HUGH LATIMER, and what
wonders he shall do in Thy Name."
  How this was accom-
published is told in next record.
