One quiet night in winter after
Corrie fell asleep,
she woke up to an urgent cry
and sounds of rushing feet.
She looked up at her Jewish friends.
Their eyes revealed their dread.
"The Germans are downstairs," one gasped,
as Corrie leapt from bed.
When Nazi Germany occupied Holland, Corrie ten Boom (1892-1983) and her family risked everything to extend God's hand of love and protection to their Jewish neighbors. A perfect hiding place was built into the wall of Corrie's bedroom, but would Corrie have the courage to keep the secret, even if it meant she and her family would suffer greatly? In the darkest of nights Corrie's compassion, sacrifice, and forgiving spirit were a shining testimony to the triumph of God's love over evil. "No pit is so deep," she believed, "that God's great love is greater still."
