A Sermon Preached in the Presbyterian Church, Vicksburg, January 20th, 1856 free pdf Excerpt from A Sermon Preached in the Presbyterian Church, Vicksburg, January 20th, 1856: In Commemoration of the Life and Death of Rev. Benj- H. Williams, Late Pastor of That Church The mercy-seat whither I was going, had shrouded itself in clouds and darkness, and the prayer I had intended to present at it, was taken from my lips - God had forbidden it- and my brother did not need it. I could only go to my congregation with the mournful tidings of the event- and as the words smote their ears, "Mr. Williams is dead," there was many a head that drooped, and many an eye that overflowed with tears, and many a heart that sank with sorrow, in that little assembly. A solemnity and a sadness, such as the contemplation of death does not often produce, pervaded the exercises of that memorable hour. God in his awful sovereignty, seemed to be standing in our midst. The hopes of man lay in scattered ruins around us. The grave yawned by our firesides, the world robed itself in sackcloth, the air was filled with wailing. With subdued and chastened spirits, we closed our devotions, and then went from the place of prayer, trying to say, - with a faith which was willing to assent to what it could not understand, - "even so Father, for so it hath seemed good in thy sight-" and feeling as we had never felt before, the truth of the Apostle's declaration, "we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us." The scene which I have described to you, I have introduced as an example of what occurred substantially, in almost every other community in our section of country. The same intense solicitude attended the intelligence of your Pastor's sickness- the same deep and absorbing sorrow followed the announcement of his death. Friends spoke of it with moistened eyes when they met upon the street. Families talked of it, in hushed tones as they sat together in the seclusion of their homes. Ministers discoursed of it in words that sobbed with emotion and trembled with awe, as they addressed their congregations in the sanctuary. Everywhere you might have found mourners, uttering their grief for the dead- - and everywhere, amongst these mourners, you might have found those who with tender sympathy, were pitying and praying for the bereaved ones, who stood at the dark centre of this circle of grief, - the wife, - the children, - the church, - left in a moment, and in a moment too of peculiar dependence, without husband, father and pastor. Four months nearly, have passed since the event which caused this wide-spread sensation, - a period long enough to place many of the dead of the past summer in the ranks of the forgotten.
