Description The Lesson of the Hour de John Chester:

Excerpt from The Lesson of the Hour: Justice as Well as Mercy The President of the United States is dead! He whom for more than four years we have looked up to more as a father than a ruler- the kind-hearted, the true-hearted, the wise hearted President has fallen. A few days ago I saw him standing at the window of his mansion, his face irradiated with a genial smile, which showed the warm heart within. I heard the kind, generous, forbearing words he spoke in the hours of triumph, and heard the cry ascend from many a lip, in a tone that showed it came from the heart, God bless you, Abraham Lincoln. A few hours ago, at midnight, a messenger knocked at my door, and breathed in faltering accents the awful tidings, The President is murdered!!" Oh, can it be? Is it not a dream? Can it be, that even in this sinful world sin has reached such a height as to assassinate our Chief Magistrate, and folly such a pitch as to murder him whose leniency they now so much needed? But an hour of trial is an hour of duty. While God permits his people to weep, and even sympathizes with them in their sorrow, yet he summons them to fulfil their stern duty. You have come this morning to the sanctuary of God, not only to pray and praise, but to be taught your duty. It is, I believe, the time when the minister of the Gospel is charged with a grave and responsible task. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
