Excerpt from A SermonThe author of this discourse, the Rev. George Hale, D. D., in view of the approaching fiftieth anniversary of the beginning of his pastoral work at Pennington, New Jersey, having expressed to the pastor of the church a desire to address a letter to the congregation, a committee from the Session was appointed to wait upon him, and extend to him an invitation to be present on that day, and deliver a sermon appropriate to the occasion.The committee visited him October 25th, 1888, when it was evident that failing health would prevent his attending the semi-centennial services. He was then actively engaged in collecting and arranging the materials for this historical sermon, which was only completed a few hours before his death.It was his last message to the people of his heart; his last act of service to the Master whom he had loved so well. That message finished, his thoughts turned in exalted contemplation to the great Source of all good - to Him who was his Hope, his Eternal Refuge, his Portion forever. "O God, thou art my God from everlasting to everlasting! O God, thou art my God from everlasting to everlasting! That goes before all. That is for myself. That is mine; the rest is theirs."Dr. Hale died on Sabbath evening, the 11th of November, 1888, between the hours of ten and eleven, one week previous to the day whose coming he had anticipated with so much pleasure. His family kindly forwarded the manuscript, which was read by the pastor. Sabbath morning, November 18th, 1888, in the presence of a large and mourning congregation.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
