In the courts of law if a man be called as a witness, no sooner is his name mentioned, though he may be at the end of the court, than he begins to force his way up to the witness box. Nobody says, 'Why is this man pushing here?' or, if they should say, 'Who are you?' would be a sufficient answer to say, 'My name was called.' 'But you are not rich, you have no gold ring upon your finger!' 'No, but that is not my right of way, but I was called.' 'Sir, you are not a man of repute, or rank, or character!' 'It matters not, I was called. Make way.' So make way, ye doubts and fears, make way, ye devils of the infernal lake, Christ calls the sinner. Sinner, come, for though thou hast nought to recommend thee, yet it is written, 'Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out.'
