The Sabbath

The Sabbath is a sign of

 God’s covenant with us.

It is a brilliant bow of promise

upon the very darkest cloud that

hangs upon the horizon of our

country. So long as we observe it,

so long shall the flood of despotism,

infidelity and anarchy

threaten us in vain. If we abandon

it, or treat it with contempt,

then comes merited vengeance;

the opening of the windows of

Heaven, the breaking up of the

foundations of the deep, and a

shore less ocean, engulfing all

that has exalted us, and made us

prosperous as a people, and the

brightest hopes and anticipations

of the nations of the earth.”


The American (June 14, 1857)
