Excerpt from The Huguenots
Let this faith be fastened on our spirits, and history becomes a beautiful study. The world is see linked to Christ - an emerald rainbow round about throne. In His great purpose its destiny of glory is secure. There is sure warrant for the expectation of that pro gress of which the poet-watchers have so hopefully sung; progress, unintermitting, through every disaster of the past, heralding progress, yet diviner, in every possibility of the future. The eye of sense may trace but scanty foreshadowings of the brightness there may be dark omens in the aspects of the times - clouds may gather gloomily around, and the wistful glance, strained through the darkness, may discern but faint traces of the coming of the day; but it shall come, and every movement brings it nigher - for the word of the Lord hath spoken it, and that word endureth for ever.
