A Sermon on the Death of General Harrison
Excerpt from A Sermon on the Death of General Harrison: Delivered in Middlebury, Vermont, on the Day of the National FastGod speaks to us in the language of his Providence, as well as in the records of revealed truth. "The voice of the Lord is upon the waters; the God of glory thundereth; The voice of the Lord breaketh the cedars, the Lord breaketh the cedars of Lebanon." His voice is heard in "the pestilence that walketh in darkness, and in the destruction that wasteth at noon day." It is sometimes heard in the ravages of war, in the disasters of commerce, in the derangements of trade, and in the devouring conflagration. To the inhabitants of this land, He has recently spoken in the emphatic language of bereavement.For the first time in our history, the highest functionary of Government, has exchanged the robes of authority for the vestments of the tomb. An event so striking, so peculiar in its circumstances, and so evidently marked with the hand of Divine Providence, demands the calm, the serious attention of every christian and of every citizen. What is the meaning of this afflictive dispensation? Hath God a controversy with this nation, and is He thus directing us as a people to call our ways to remembrance, and to turn our feet into the Divine testimonies? Is He saying to us "Let all the earth fear the Lord, let all the inhabitants stand in awe of Him. For He spake and it was done"? Is not the appropriate respone of each heart, "O Lord, I have heard thy speech and was afraid."About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
