Oh! when shall time give place to eternity? When shall appear that new heaven and new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness? There, there shall in no wise enter in any thing that defileth: none of that wickedness which has made men worse than wild beasts, none of those corruptions which add still more to the miseries of mortality, shall be seen or heard of any more.
--The last journal entry of Henry Martyn (February 18, 1781 – October 16, 1812, missionary and Bible translator to the peoples of India and Persia).
