Of the old hero the minstrel sang:


'With his Yemen sword for aid;
Ornament it carried none,
But the notches on the blade.'


What nobler decoration of honour can any godly man seek after than his scars of service, his losses for the cross, his reproaches for Christ's sake, his being worn out in his Master's service!
