Genève, Dec. 15, 1862

Amen! chère et vivante soeur en Jesus. Oui, qu’il plaise au Seigneur, de rapporter à sa gloire le beau et facile talent qu’il vous confie. Ah, c’est un grand honneur que l’Esprit Saint fait reposer sur mes faibles chants, quand Il les addresse aux âmes par le langage que vous leur avez donné. Et quelle bénédiction, n’est ce pas sur nous, qu’Il daigne ainsi se servir de nos bouches pour répéter à plusieurs que con­naitre le don du Père en Jesus, c’est avoir, ici bas, déjà, des gages d l’eternelle joie. Je vous remercie donc, de nouveau et cordialement, et avec vous je demand à Celui qui seul bénit, qu’il fasse reposer sur votre belle et bonne ouvrage le regard de son approbation.

Chère soeur, quelle allégresse sera la votre quand vous verrez dans la demeure paternelle des âmes que vos chants avaient unis à Jesus!

Votre cher frère est joint, dans mon coeur, à votre doux nom. Qu’il plaise au Tout Bon, de vous bénir l’un et l’autre, et aussi le ferait-il!

César Malan
