Praise From God--By Evelyn Splane--Canada

Praise From God

Some day before the Judge we'll stand,
While Record Books are in His hand.
Nothing from His eye is hid,
Of all the things on earth we did.
The things we did for praise from men
For these there's no reward again,
But other deeds in secret hid,
These for the Lord alone we did.
We work; we pray; we give; we go,
That others too His love may know.
Of things done here upon the earth,
These are the deeds of greatest worth.
God knows the labour and the tears,
The faithful work of many years,
He'll say "Well done" and give us praise
We'll see the smile upon His face.

At her own expense Evelyn Splane traveled many times back and forth from Canada, her homeland, to India, for the fifty years she was an active missionary.  She lived in a modest, one-bedroom suite in the basement of a church, in Toronto. In April of 2006, due to her advancing age, and deteriorating health, she moved West to live with her sister and brother-in-law, Hart and Helen Dowd.  Now, as her health does not permit, she can no longer travel about from place to place in her homeland to create and renew an interest in the Lord's work in her adopted land of India. However, she generously gives of her meager income to help others go. (If you want to read more of Evelyn’s stories, check out:
