Excerpt from God's Doings for the Nation: A Sermon Preached in the First Presbyterian Church, Greenwich, New Jersey, on the Day of National Thanksgiving, November 24th, 1864

I. As a first thing to be noticed, He has preserved to us our National life. With this thought the Proclamation of the President, in response to which we have now assembled in the sanctuary, opens: and it is worthy of our joyous and thankful consideration. The national life has been in peril. A giant conspiracy has been formed against it, and has long been seeking its destruction. Terrible and repeated blows have been struck at it. The assassin's dagger has been thrust at the very heart of the Nation. Success in the wicked schemes, to which our foes have embarked, would involve the utter overthrow of our nationality, and would substitute for it, many sovereign and independent nations. State governments would take precedence of the general government. That which is least would be exalted above that which is greatest. And all that distinguishes us as a Nation, all that serves to give us a place among thefamily of nations, and all that commands for us the respect of the great powers of the earth, would pass from us. Our unity would be gone: therein lies the great secret of our power and in?uence as a Nation as applicable to the re lation of our States to each other, there is a peculiar sig nificance in the utterance, in union there is strength. Broken up into fragments, we would become a by-word and a hissing among the nations; and all that would remain to us would be but the wreck of departed great ness.
