An Historical Discourse

Excerpt from An Historical Discourse: Delivered in the New North Church, October 1, 1854 A Contemplation of the past, if it lead to emulation of its good deeds and avoidance of its errors, if it stimulate men to do nobly by showing what already hath been thus done, is often a wise employment of the passing hour. And if it testify the undying nature of virtue by showing that each true action lives ever in its effects, such meditation may nerve our hearts to exertion by the sweet hope that the good we do need not in its influence slumber in our graves, but shall live on when the poor body in which the active spirit once dwelt has crumbled to the dust. In entering once more our house of worship, which has now been for three months closed in order to be remodelled as to its interior, it seems fitting to vary from the routine of discourse and speak of somewhat which shall prompt us to renewed and increased effort that this church of the fathers shall long remain a monument of the zeal and piety of the past, and a witness to the faith and self-sacrifice of the present. And when I remember that this very year in which the present improvements have been made completes the half-century since the dedication of this edifice, I seem to hear a voice, speaking in the words of our text, and saying of all who meet here this day, "Let them show the former things, what they be, that we may consider them."
