Artist's Description

Based on Rev Duncan Campbell’s testimony – In his own words from a recording of a message he gave:

“In the last major charge of the British Cavalry, I was severely wounded. And I am now lying on the ground beside a dead horse, the horse had rolled over me in the fall and injured my spine …but I am also severely wounded in my body and blood is flowing freely from it. While lying there I was convicted and convinced in my own mind that I was dying. O it came forcibly before me, the blood flowing freely – “O no you can’t live” these were thoughts that coursed through my mind. And suddenly that verse of scripture came before me. “Without holiness no man can see God. And my dear people conscious deep in the glorious realization that I was born again. I felt very unworthy and very unfit to meet God. O I’m just telling you how I felt, but then in the providence of God another remarkable thing happened the Canadian horse were called out to a second charge. I refer to the Lord Strathcona Horse of Canada and when charging over the bloody battlefield with the hundreds wounded and perhaps hundreds dying a horses hoof struck me in the spine. They were charging over the dead and the living, and that horses hoof struck me and I must have groaned because that groan registered in the mind of the young trooper and when the charge was over he was among the few that came back, and I tell you there was very few, it was a dreadful day. But he came right to where I lay, dismounted, lifted me and threw me across the horses back and took the reins and galloped to the nearest casualty clearing station now it was on that horses back that the glorious miracle happened.

God, O God make me as holy as a saved sinner can be!
I remembered a prayer of my father or a prayer of Murray M’Cheyne and I cried “God, O God make me as holy as a saved sinner can be!” And God did it! O I think I mentioned this already but it’s worth mentioning again but God swept into my life and I knew in a matter of minutes an experience that I didn’t think was possible this side of heaven. Through all my soul its waters flow, Thro’ all my nature stealing; And deep within my heart I knew the consciousness of healing. O my dear people I was healed physically, No…..Spiritually – Yes! A sense of God kept coursing through. I already mentioned this I that at that moment I felt as a pure as an angel. I am only saying what I felt dear people don’t misunderstand me. Only God knew where I stood and how I stood but that was how I felt. My dear people if you wish to honour God – Give him credit for the Excellency of his work in redemption, He is a God that heals and a God that saves! "
