gulf on Ih" sieface of American politl s,
and around which, upon ils very brink of
.1st in, t ion the ship of national weal has
-ivi-ati-d In spite of rudder, keel or sail.
Thank Hod that though (be national sov
ereignity has hung In the balance of con
tending parties as a price to be won and
fought for and the deepest feelings of
AnuTli-nu partisanship has been stirred lo

SAKKLY ItHiHKN (IK STORM.
The beautiful vessel of a. nation's hopes
and p layers built and founded by I he
wisdom of a Vu--hington, san.-tltc-d hy
th" blood of Lincoln, and made glorio.is
by the valor nn, I heroism of a (iraiit-lias
liddcii the storm lu safety; the promise
and lamest of a more glorious future,
when purer politics, n more eduealcl
thought, a nohl.-r Ihnn a mere partisan
ship, shall chant in unison, the poet's
pia.a r wit hum fear of reverse or failure:
"Sail on. sail on. thou ship of state,
.Sail on, u l.'nloii strong; and great.
In snlte nf ro. k and tempests' roar,
In spile of false lights on the shore;
Sail on. nor fear lo breast the sea!
' Hit- hearts, our hopes are all with thee!"
And. now, I ask the lust question of
all. what have we to la- thaiiklul for.'
And, I answer as one among the mil
lions of Hod's people, not only in this land
but Hod's land of the world, for the spirit
of iiiiloii, a tree heartfelt union without
t lie s.i.-i iiiee of one personal religious opin
ion; that is drawing the whole Christian
church of the world closer and closer Ir.
gelher 111 the divine essentials of love,
charily and work for that blessed Master,
who stretched out His hand over all His
truly reilei-nied ones, and calls them by
Ihe name of children, whether they be
l-lack or white, houd or free, civilized or
h, :il hen. Thank (iod for the time almost
come, now almost lu-ar. when the leaders
of Christianity, Its "great hearts." Its dis
passionate thinkers, Ils true worker,
shall rejoice less In their tribal iiiiii(
and more in that (lllcicney of union, that
shall make them almost Irresistible in
,-iuslilng the forces of sin and corruplljii
Into the dust ut a linn I annihilation.
Itret hren, 1 have dwelt upon our tlrst
text "the fenst of the harvest, so far,
let me close by Just one thought of the
second. It came us a voire from heaven
lu that sublime vision of John, when,
upon the Isle of Patnios. he saw Ihe con.
summation of Hie Christ re.lciiniiion. in
making thanksgiving eternal! Yes, it 1.4
a startling thought, a thrilling thought,
that w hile the Christ inn's faith mav die
in ihe living sight of heaven, and "hope

b-cause of the end of want. The service
of this hour, the thanksgiving service of
the soul, shall be repeated In spirit by the
very throne of Hod, and shall mark our
servle- to thai Hod forever and forever!
I ouote. In closing ns Its proof, the glo
rious language of John himself, listen to
Ils majestic and inii.ressive tones.
"Afiir tills. I hi held. and. lo, a trroat
multitude, which no man could number,
of all nations, and kindreds, and people,

before Ihe Lamb, clothed with white robes
