Excerpt from The Pulpit Tested: A Sermon Delivered at the Centennial Anniversary of the Congregational Church in Great Barrington, Dec. 23, 1843
Iwhen we wish to make our thoughts touch the heart, we borrow aid from scenes of distress. He who should paint the moth er fainting and sinking down on the rock, as her only son sank under the billows to rise no more, would understand human nature. Could the last shriek of agony which came from the drowning child be also painted, the picture would be more complete. The mournful songs of Jeremiah, which ﬂowed from his harp while his land was in ruins, are full of what is tender, and simple as infancy.
Oh! That my head were waters and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people.
