Children: Their Future
In the early French revolution, the schoolboys of Bourges, from twelve to seventeen years of age, formed themselves into Band of Hope. They wore a uniform, and were taught drill. On their holidays, their flag was unfurled, displaying in shining letters the sentence: 'Tremelez, Tyrans, Nous grandirons!' (Tremble, Tyrants, we shall grow up!). Without any charge of spurious enthusiasm, we may, in imagination, hear the shouts of confidence and courage, uttered by the young Christians of the future, as they say, 'Tremble, enemy, w are growing up for God!'Mr. S. R. Paulson's Address at the Meeting of the Baptist Union, 1869.
