Queen Meets King of Kings


food for thought header 2
Dean Farrar was a privileged personal friend of Queen Victoria, though he seldom referred to the distinction. But on the first anniversary of the accession of Edward VII to the throne of England, during the service in Canterbury Cathedral, he told how the Queen, after hearing one of her chaplains preach at Windsor on the second coming of Christ, spoke to the Dean about it and said, “Oh, how I wish that the Lord would come during my lifetime.”

“Why does your Majesty feel this very earnest desire?” asked the great preacher.

With her queenly countenance lit up with deep emotion she replied, “Because I should so love to lay my crown at His feet.”

    I heard that same quote attributed to Queen Elizabeth II. Whoever said it, was spot on. All our riches will be laid at His feet.
