Excerpt from The Nation's Wail: A Discourse Delivered in the First Presbyterian Church of Detroit, on Sabbath, the 16th of April, 1865, the Day After Receiving the Intelligence of the Brutal Murder of President Abraham Lincoln, by a Brutal Assassin

The nation is deluged with woe. Our patriotic, virtuous and devoted President has fallen by the hand of the assassin. In the midst of our rejoicings over victories, and the crushing of rebellion: from the loftiest pinnacle of our joy, we are hurled down into the depths of heart-breaking anguish. The firm and faithful hand that held the reins of government, lies cold and motionless in death. The heart that never ceased or tired in its throbbings of love and zeal, and heroic consecration to the safety, interests, honor and happiness of our beloved country, no longer wells out the gushing streams of its intense, unselfish and ardent affections. He, for whom the nation has so long and ardently prayed, whose appeals to the hearts of all Christian people for their sympathy with him in the midst of his solemn and heavy responsibilities, and for their remembrance of him at a throne of grace - has gone forever beyond the reach or need of our supplications. He has passed away without a note of warning, like a brilliant sun, in the midst of his glory, from the very zenith of its splendor.
