Excerpt from Holy Ground: Three Sermons on the War in South Africa, Preached in Westminster Abbey
The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.' - deut. XXXIII. 27.
These are among the last words Of the parting blessing of Moses. Before the aged statesman-prophet, who has led the people through the wilderness to the very borders of the promised land, climbs the hill where (as the old tradition says) he died of the kiss of God, he sums up his experience of the past and declares his hope for the future.
The words were spoken, as all the greatest utterances of the Old Testament were spoken, to a people.
