Had Not He Stretched Forth His Hand

From the pen of John Calvin, about the death of his wife, to his friend, William Farel, April 11, 1549:

May the Lord Jesus strengthen you by His Spirit; and may He support me also under this heavy affliction, which would certainly have overcome me, had not He, who raises up the prostrate, strengthens the weak, and refreshes the weary, stretched forth His hand from heaven to me.

Letters from John Calvin: Selected from the Bonnet Edition, the Banner of Truth, 1980, p. 107-108.
