...It is the supreme prayer, described the mother of the Vedas, named after its metre which means “the saviour of the singer”, revealed to sage Vishvamitra. Gayatri is the mantra of the real Guru, the Omniscient God. The writers of the scriptures call it the “Soul of the Vedas’.
None know how to prize the saviour, but such as are zealous in pious works for others.
Precious saviour! come in spirit, and lay Thy strong, gentle grasp of love on our dear boys and girls, and keep these our lambs from the fangs of the wolf.theodore l. cuyler
As we look upon that agony and those tearful prayers, let us not only look with thankfulness; but lot that kneeling saviour teach us that in prayer alone can we be forearmed against our lesser sorrows; that strength to bear flows into the heart that is opened in supplication; and that a sorrow which we are made able to endure is more truly cohijuered than a sorrow which we avoid.alexander maclaren
Surely it is a matter of joy, that your faith in Jesus has been preserved; the Comforter that should relieve you is not far from you. But as you are a Christian, in the name of that saviour, who was filled with bitterness and made druken with wormwood, I conjre you to have recourse in frequent prayer to 'his God and your God,' the God of mercies, and father of all comfort. Your poor father is, I hope, almost senseless of the calamity; the unconscious instrument of Divine Providence knows it not, and your mother is in heaven.Charles Lamb
It is sufficiently evident from many circumstances, that the doctrine of the divinity of Christ did not establish itself without much opposition, especially from the unlearned among the Christians, who thought that it savoured of Polytheism , that it was introduced by those who had had a philosophical education, and was by degrees adopted by others, on account of its covering the great offence of the cross , by exalting the personal dignity of our saviour.joseph priestley
Christ is not God, not the saviour of the world, but a mere man, a sinful man, and an abominable idol. All who worship him are abominable idolaters. And Christ did not rise again from death to life nor did he ascend into heaven.
When life has been well spent; when there is a conscience without reproach; when there is faith in the saviour; when there is a well-founded hope of heaven, there can be nothing that should disquiet us.albert barnes
What to my saviour shall I giveWho freely hath done this for me?I'll serve him here whilst I shall liveAnd Loue him to Eternityanne bradstreet
Faith is the act of trust by which one being, a sinner, commits himself to another being, a saviour.horace bushnell
Christians, awake! salute the happy morn,Whereon the saviour of mankind was born.john byrom
Faith then, in its relation to salvation, is that confidence by which we accept it as a free gift from the saviour, and is the only possible way in which the gift of God could be appropriated.mark hopkins
Sun of my soul, Thou saviour dear,It is not night if Thou be near;Oh, may no earth-born cloud ariseTo hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes.john keble
Jesus lives! the same comforting, helping, instructing, loving Elder Brother, as when John leaned on His bosom, as when He lifted Peter up from the waves, as when He dried Mary's tears with His, "Thy sins are forgiven thee." Jesus lives! the same almighty saviour, Guide, Intercessor, as when He ascended to glory with the broken fetters of sin and death in His pierced hands.abbott eliot kittredge
saviour! teach me, day by day,Love's sweet lesson to obey;Sweeter lesson cannot be,Loving Him who first loved me.Charity is the very livery of Christ.Hugh Latimer
The true religion of Jesus Christ our saviour is that which penetrates, and which receives all the warmth of the heart, and all the elevation of the soul, and all the energies of the understanding, and all the strength of the will.arthur penrhyn stanley
On Thee alone my hope relies,Beneath Thy cross I fall;My Lord! my Life! my Sacrifice!My saviour! and my All!anne steele
Dear Lord! while we adoring payOur humble thanks to Thee,May every heart with rapture say,—"The saviour died for me!"anne steele
In regard to this Great Book, I have but to say, it is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the saviour gave to the world was communicated through this book.Abraham Lincoln
There is truth in Jesus which is terrible, as well as truth that is soothing; terrible, for He shall be Judge as well as saviour; and ye cannot face Him, ye cannot stand before Him, unless ye now give ear to His invitation.henry melvill
Magic is that which it is; it is by itself, like the mathematics; for it is the exact and absolute science of Nature and its laws . Magic is the science of the Ancient Magi: and the Christian religion, which has imposed silence on the lying oracles, and put an end to the prestiges of the false Gods , itself reveres those Magi who came from the East, guided by a Star , to adore the saviour of the world in His cradle.albert pike
There is truth in Jesus which is terrible, as well as truth that is soothing; terrible, for He shall be Judge as well as saviour; and ye cannot face Him, ye cannot stand before Him, unless ye now give ear to His invitation.
Earth has one angel less, and heaven one more since yesterday. Already, kneeling at the throne, she has received her welcome, and is resting on the bosom of her saviour.Nathaniel Hawthorne
Dearest wife, let us go on and faint not; something of ours is in heaven besides the flesh of our exalted saviour, and we go on after our own .
Oh, heaven without my saviour Would be no heaven to me; Dim were the walls of jasper Rayless the crystal sea. He gilds earth's darkest valleys With light and joy and peace; What then must be the radiance When night and death shall cease?
When, O crowned Jesus ; when, O loving saviour; when, O patient and just Judge when wilt Thou come forth from Thy hiding, and change tears to smiles , and groans to joys ? When shall that choral song burst forth, sweeping through the air , and circling about Thy throne, which shall proclaim the redemption of the world to the Lord God ?
Conversion is the act of joining our hands to the pierced hand of the crucified saviour. The new life begins with the taking of Christ's hand, and His taking hold, in infinite love, of our weak hands.
Christians awake, salute the happy morn whereon the saviour of the world was born.john byrom
Solely by the merits of Jesus Christ, Our saviour.
