Hymns Sermon Illustrations

During a circus performance in Dublin, at the time of the great revival under Moody's preaching when Sankey's hymns were being sung everywhere, one clown, pretending to be dejected, said to the other, 'I feel quite moody tonight. How do you feel?' ‘Oh!’ said the other, 'I'm sankeymonious.' Contrary to what was expected, this was met with hisses, and the whole audience rose and sang, 'Hold the fort, for I am coming.'—D. J. Beattie

(Jude 18)
