Rebellion Record: a Diary of American Events: Documents and Narratives, Volume 2. (ed. Frank Moore), Doc. 22.-Hudson River Baptist Association, report and resolutions, June 19. (search)
we recognize the truly righteous character of this conflict; that while it may be properly regarded as a war for our nationality, or a war for the life of a constitutional Government, or for the maintenance of our flag, or as a war for the rights of the people against the usurpations of an oligarchy; nevertheless, beyond all these aims, we recognize the existence of a war waged for the absolute supremacy of a despotic earthly power on the one hand, against the rightful dominion of our Lord Jesus Christ, whose kingdom guarantees the inalienable and universal rights of our redeemed humanity, on the other. Resolved, That, in view of the death of our Lord and Saviour for men of every rank and class, of every nation, tribe, kith or kin, we regard the brotherhood of man, the moral and spiritual equality of all the races of men, as an essential doctrine of the Christian religion; that it rests like a sure corner-stone upon the foundation that God hath laid in Zion; that whosoever falleth
eat goodness as may engage us to a true thankfulness, such as may appear in our lives by an humble, holy, and obedient walking before thee all our days through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with thee and the Holy Spirit, as for all thy mercies, so in particular for this victory and deliverance, be all honor and glory, world withaffliction, and with resignation to thy blessed will; comfort them with a sense of thy goodness, lift up thy countenance upon them, and give them peace through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen! II. for the wounded, the sick, and dying.--O, most gracious Father! we fly unto thee for mercy in behalf of those, thy poor servants, lyito thy unspeakable glory that thou hast redeemed the souls of thy servants from eternal death, and made them partakers of the everlasting life which is through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen! I desire that these prayers be used on the occasion above referred to, and so long as shall seem proper and expedient to you, and in that p
everal place and station, and all of us conjointly, as a greatly sinning and greatly punished people. What we want is faith; faith, to perceive that God is, and is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him; faith, to believe in him and in Jesus Christ, whom he hath sent; faith, to find out that there are better things to labor for than the good things of this present life, better uses of our days and means than making haste to be rich; faith, to lay the evil secrets of our hearts before ouronately invite you; and implore you, not only in public assemblage on the day set apart for national observance, but also continually, in every mode of approach to God in prayer, before and after the set time of solemn service, to supplicate our Father in Heaven for the bestowal upon this people of his unspeakable blessing of godly quietness in public peace. Affectionately and faithfully, your servant in Christ, William Rollinson Whittingham, Bishop of Maryland. Baltimore, August 14, 1861.
sake; but be merciful unto Thy people, whom thou hast redeemed, and be not angry with us forever. Pardon us, O gracious God, for Thy mercy's sake, and restore order, tranquillity, and fraternal unity amongst us, through the merits of Thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. ΒΆ After the General Thanksgiving, shall be said the following Prayer: Oh, Almighty God, the Sovereign Commander of the world, to whom belongeth power, which none is able to withstand, we commend to Thy Gracious protec their households; assuage their fears, encourage their hearts, and comfort them with Thy grace and heavenly benediction under any afflictions Thou shalt see fit to lay upon them. And grant that those Thy servants, and all of us, being duly impressed with a sense of thy goodness toward us in the past, may have cause to bless Thy name for the continuance of Thy mercies to us, and may ever express our thankfulness by a holy trust in Thee and obedience to Thy laws, through Jesus Christ our Lord.
