Is Thy Strength so Small?



So I saw in my dream, that he made haste and went
forward, that if possible he might get lodging there. Now
before he had gone far, he entered into a very narrow pas-
sage, which was about a furlong off of the porter’s lodge; and
looking very narrowly before him as he went, he espied two
lions in the way. Now, thought he, I see the dangers that
Mistrust and Timorous were driven back by. (The lions were
chained, but he saw not the chains). Then he was afraid, and
thought also himself to go back after them, for he thought
nothing but death was before him. But the porter at the
lodge, whose name is Watchful, perceiving that Christian
made a halt as if he would go back, cried unto him, saying,
Is thy strength so small?  Fear not the lions, for they are
chained, and are placed there for trial of faith where it is,
and for discovery of those that have none. Keep in the midst
of the path, and no hurt shall come unto thee.
