“The world’s history is a divine poem of which the history of every nation is a canto and every man a word. Its strains have been pealing along down the centuries, and though there have been mingled discords of warring and cannon and dying men, yet to the the Christian philosopher and historian – the humble listener – there has been a divine melody running through the song which speaks of hope and peaceful days to come.”
