Weary of Wandering from My God
“The Chaplain of Glasgow prison once found a young woman eighteen or
nineteen standing in her cell with her hymn-book in her hand. ‘She looked up,
and, holding it out, said to me, ‘This is a “hymn which I’m much ta’en up wi’.’
I read the first two lines, and found my eyes filling with tears as I
looked at her and said, ‘Are you weary of wandering from your God?’
“The answer was ‘Yes, indeed I am.’ Thereupon I had the great privilege
of dealing with an anxious soul.
we not only sang the hymn, but I preached specially to weary wanderers.
The following day an old man grasped my hand as I entered his cell, and in
an earnest and solemn voice said, ‘When the great day comes there will be
found a soul among the redeemed, brought there through that hymn we sang yesterday,
for,’he continued, ‘when you read
out, ‘Weary of wandering from my God,’ I said, ‘That’s me. I’m weary, and
I’m ready to return,’ and,” he added, “come back to my God I have.”’
