  7.  O Gentle Savour

Krihfa Hlabu (Laiholh) i number pakhatnak “Pathian cu thangthat si ko seh” timi hla khi a mah phuahmi a si. Hla minthang taktak a si.

Crosby nih hin vawlei lei biazai zong 1,000 tluk hi a tial. Biazai uk li a chuah. Tambik zuarmi cauk-minung tuanbia cauk zong a tial. Vawleilei hla zong hawi he a bawm in an phuah. Ram le phuntanhnak hla (patriotic song) zong tampi a phuah. A biapi a tuanmi cu Missionary hna riantuan bawmh hi a si.

A mah hi, minung a si aa theih hlan in, khua a hmu lo. Vawleicung le van hi zeidah a lawh timi zong a thei lo. Minung hi zeidah an lawh timi zong a thei lo. Thingkung ramkung le saram hi zeidah an lawh timi zong a thei lo i, vawlei hi zei dah a si timi hi a hmu lo hrimhrimmi a si. Cu bantuk minung a si caah, khuaruahhar minung cu a si ko.  Cucacaah catialtu cheukhat nih a kong hi tin an tial:

A nu hrinnak mit cun khua a hmu lo nain, a thinlung in khua a hmumi a si. Minung hi zeidah an lawh? Minung hmai hi zeidah a lawh?” timi a hmu kho lo nain, Pathian hmai hi zeidah a lawh tiah a hmu khotu a si. A nunnak hi, harnak in a khat nain, Pathian he naih tein  a um, Pathian hmai a hmumi a si.”

Amah cu a mit a caw ko nain, mitcawmi sianginn ah sayama rian a tuan. Lam hlat le lam nai ah, vawlei khuazakip ah hawikom tha a ngei. A hla tampi cu, tu chun Lai Krihfa Hlabu zong ah an um hna i a tu tiang kan sak rih hna. Hla pakhat a phuahmi cu hi tin a si:

Ka nun chung vialte mitcaw ding in, thluachuah petu Pathian nih a ka timh piak ko rua…..A khuakhannak ah Amah cu ka lomh……Hi vawlei a tlingmi mit hi thaizing ah ka pe hna sehlaw, ka cohlang lai lo….. Keimah kong  i uar awk a ummi thil hna le ka dawhnak hna nih, ka thinlung an ka pialter lai i, Pathian thangthatnak hla ka sa kho hnga lo.”

Mah tluk mitcawt bu ah lomhnak in Pathian a thangthat khawhmi le aa lomh khawh rihmi ruah ah, khuaruahhar in a thawngmi zumhnak a ngei. Hi bantuk zumhnak ngeimi cu vawleicung ah an tlawmte lai. Hi nu zumhnak hi, Krihfa vialte nih zohchunh a tlakmi le kan i zohchunh dingmi zumhnak a si.

Minung tampi cu nuhrinnak minung mit kan ngei ko nain, Pathian sining kan hmu kho lo. Mitcaw Fanny Crosby phuahmi hla hna nih hin, Pathian umnak kong an langhter. Pathian hi hnem khotu a sinak an langhter. Hi bantuk zumtu caah cun vanram phak hi ngaih a um tuk ding a si. Zeicatiah “Vancung ahcun mitcaw an um ti lo caah a si.”
