St Thomas Church Gallowgate (1862)

The same evening Gordon Furlong, Esq., addressed a meeting in St. Thomas's Church, Gallowgate. A great blessing attended the services. About three hundred re­mained to the inquiry meeting, and it is believed that many souls were gathered into the fold of Christ; among these were an old man and his wife who sat listening with great delight to the blessedness of having God's work freely and fully to rest upon. For the first time, apparently, was the old man enabled to comprehend with all saints this blessed doctrine, his face beaming with delight as he responded, "Ah, that's good, that's good!”

On Monday evening Mr Furlong addressed a meeting in Green-street Church. His address was on the finished work of Christ. The hymn was then given out:—

“Nothing, either great or small,

Nothing, sinner, no;

Jesus did it, did it all,

Long, long ago."

There was nothing in the address calculated to excite or distress. Yet, immediately after the hymn was sung, several, unable to restrain their emotions, burst out into cries of distress, and were removed to the vestry. Sitting beside her companion, who was in a hardened state of mind, was a young woman who was terrified of being awakened to find that she was a lost sinner. On being directed to the Lamb of God, and her mind soothed with the promises of the Saviour, she could do nothing but sit weeping now with delight, saying, " Jesus! Jesus! "— Wynd Journal.
