James Montgomery Quotes

    The Flash At Midnight

    The flash at midnight! - 'twas a light
    That gave the blind a moment's sight
    Then sank in tenfold gloom;
    Loud, deep, and long, the thunder broke,
    The deaf ear instantly awoke,
    Then closed as in the tomb:
    An angel might have passed my bed,
    Sounded the trump of God, and fled.
