Bonar’s Hope


What hope have we for eternity?

Horatius Bonar was a Church of Scotland minister who at the time of the Disruption (1843) sided with the Free Church. He served at Leith, Kelso and Edinburgh. A prolific author, he wrote several poems and hymns, including ‘I heard the voice of Jesus say, come unto me and rest.’

Bonar’s great hope was in Christ. He wrote, ‘Upon a life I did not live, upon a death I did not die; anothers life, anothers death, I stake my whole eternity.’
