And having thus chosen our course, without guile and with pure purpose, let us renew our trust in God, and go forward without fear and with manly hearts.
עמוד 36 - I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel: "As ye deal with My contemners so with you My grace shall deal; Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel! Since God is marching on.
עמוד 36 - Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord: He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored; He hath loosed the fateful lightning of his terrible swift sword: His truth is marching on.
עמוד 30 - Our new government is founded upon exactly the opposite ideas ; its foundations are laid, its corner-stone rests upon the great truth that the negro is not equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition.
עמוד 36 - In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea, With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me; As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free, While God is marching on.
עמוד 33 - If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it ; if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it ; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that.
עמוד 30 - It is indeed in conformity with the ordinance of the Creator. It is not for us to inquire into the wisdom of His ordinances, or to question them. For His own purposes He has made one race to differ from another, as He has made "one star to differ from another star in glory.
