Closing Word

The future of Trinity Lutheran Church is now in the hands of its members and will he what you make it with your individual and united efforts tinder the leadership of a faithful pastor.

May the future even be brighter and more successful than the past, should he the earnest prayer of every member.

"Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life."

DR. ERNST VON HAHMANN.


GOD KNOWS!

The ills we see,
The mysteries of sorrow, deep and long,
The dark enigmas of permitted wrong,
This strange sad world is but our Father's school,
          Have all one key
All chance and change his love shall grandly overrule.
          How sweet to know
The trials which we cannot comprehend
Have each their own divinely purposed end:
          He traineth so.
