tho ocean; and we come out from the. gal
lery better men than when wo went In.
Wr go Into the concert of music and are
lifted Into enchantment; for days nfter our
oul seems to rock with n very tumult of
Joy, 11 tins sen, after n long stress of
weather, rolls and rocksiind surges n great
while beforu It conies back to its ordinary
culm.
On tho Fame principle It In prolltable to
think of heaven, and look olT upon that
landscape of Joy and Unlit which St. John
depicts; tho rivers of gladness, tho trees of
life, tho thrones of power, tho cummin
gllngH of everlasting love. I wish this
morning thnt I could bring heaven from
tho list of Intangibles and uiiiko It scorn to
you am It really Is thegrent fact In nil his
tory, the depot of nil nges, tho parlor of
God's unlverso.
This account In my text gives n picture
of heaven as It Is on a holiday. Now If n
tniui omno to Now York for tho first time
on tho ilny that Kossuth arrived from
Hungary, ami ho saw tho arches lifted,
anil tlio (lowers Hung In tho streets, nml he
heard tho nuns booming, ho would have
been very foolish to suppose, that that was
the ordinary appearanco of the city. While
heaven s always grand and nlways beau
tiful. I think my toxt speaks of n gala day
la heaven.
A OtlEAT HAY IN HEAVEN.
It Is a tlino of great celebrationperhaps
of the birth or the resurrection of Jesus;
perhaps of tho downfall of some des
potism; perhaps because of tho rushing
In of tho mllleuuliim. I know not
what; hut It does seem to mo in reading
thin passage ns If It wore n holiday In
henven. "After this I behold, mid lol h
6 rent multltudo which no mini could mini
er, of nil nntloiiH nml klndrisls nml peo
ple nml tongues, stood lie fore tho throne,
and beforo tho lmnb, clothed with white
robe, and palms in their hands, nml cried
with n loud vulee, saying, Salvation to our
God which altteth upon the throne, mid
onto tho Lnmh."
I shall speak to you of tho glorified In
heaven their nuinber, their antecedents,
their dress, their symbols and their song.
But how shall 1 begin by tolling you of
the uumbers of those in heaven f I have
Men a curious estimate by an Ingenious
man who calculates how long the world
wm going to Inst, nml how many people
there nro in each generation, nml then
rami up tho wiiolo matter, nml says ho
think there will bo twenty-seven trillions
of (touts in glory. I have tio faith in his
Mtlmate. I Mm ply take the plain an
nouncement of the text it is "a great
multitude, which no man can number."
Every few years In this country we take
acensuiof the population, and It Is very
asy to tell how many people there are lu
a city or nation, but who shall give the
census of tho great nation of tho saved f
It in qulto easy to tell how many people
there are In different denominations
of Christians how ninny Baptists and
Methodists and Episcopalians nml Presby
terians; of all tho denominations of Chris
tians wo could make an estimate.
Suppose they were gathered in ono great
audience room; how overwhelming thy
spectacle) Hut It would give no Idea of
the great audience room of heaven the
multitude that bow down nml that lift up
their hosannns. Why, they come from all
the chapels, from all the cathedrals, from
all sects, from all ages; they who prayed
in splendid liturgy, nml tho.se who in bro
ken sentences littered the wish of broken
hearts from Ciruce church and Sailors'
Bethel, from under tho shapeless rafters
and from under high sprung arch "n great
multitude, that no man can number."
One of tho most Impressive thing I have
look i t upon U nn army. Standing upon a
hillside you see forty thousand or llfty
thousand men pass along. You can hardly
Imagine tho Impression if you have not ac
tually felt it, but you may tako all the
armies that the earth has ever seen the
legions under Sennacherib mid Cyrus nml
Caesar, Xerxes and Alexander and Napo
leon and all our modern force nml put
them in one great array, and then on some
wlff. steed you may ride along the lino and
review the troops, and that accumulated
host from nil age seems like a halt formed
regiment compared with the great array of
the redeemed.
THE OIIKAT PARADE.
I stood one day ut Wllllnmsport, and saw
on the opposite side of the Potomnc tho
force coming down, regiment after rvgl
. ment and brigade after brigade. It seemed
as though there wns no end to the proces
sion. But now let me take the Held glass
of St. John and look on upon the host of
heaven thousands upon thousand, ten
thousand time ten thousand, ono hun
dred and forty nud four thousand, and
thousands of thousands, until I put down
the field glass and say, "I cannot estimate
it a great multitude that no man cau
number."
Vou may tax your Imagination and
torture your Ingenuity ami break down
your power of calculation lu attempting
torxpiev the lutiltltudes of tho released
from earth and the cur tptured of heaven,
nml talk of hundreds of hundreds (J hun
dreds, of thousands of thousands of thou
Minds, of millions of millions of iiilllloni,
until your head nches nml your heart
faints, and exhausted nml overburdened
you exrhilm, "I cannot count them vi
great multitude that mi man can num
ber." Hut my subject advances, and tell you
of their antecedents, "of all nation nud
kindreds ami tongues," Some of thvin
rpoko Scotch, Irish, Herman, KnglMi,
Italian, Spanish, Tamil, Choctaw, llitr
lilese. After men have been long III the
laud you cau tell by their accentuation
from what nationality they came; and 1
suppose In tho great throng around thu
throne It will not lie dllllciilt to tell from
what pint of thu earth they came.
These leaped .Sicilian wheat Melds nml
thoso picked cotton from thu pods, These
under blistering skies gathered tamarinds
nud yams, Those crossed tho desert on
camels and those glanced over tho snow,
drawn by Siberian dogs, ami these milked

fought thu walrus and white bear In

heard tho Ming of llery winged birds lu

copper color. From nil lauds, from nil

dungeons. They passed through Spanish

tho amphitheater. They were Moravian).
They weru Waldeiises. They wero Al

They were Sandwich Islanders.

of government. Tho United Slates want a

saved ami recounts his victories It will bo
like the rocking and tossing of a forest Iti
n tempest, as all tho redeemed rise up,
host beyond host, rank beyond rank, wav
lug, waving their palms.
My subject makes another advancement,
and speak of tho song they slug.
Dr. Dick, In a very learned work, say
that among other tWngs In henven he
thinks they will give n great deal of time
to the study of arithmetic and thu higher
branches of mathematlc. I do not be
lieve It, It would upet my Idea of heaven
If I thought mi; I ueverllked mathematics,
and I would rather take the representation
of my text, which describe thu ncuiipntloii
of heaven as being Jo) fill psalmody, "They
cried with u loud voice, saying, Salvation
unto our fiod," In this world wo have
secular songs, nursery songs, boatmen's
songs, harvest songs, sentimental songs;
but In heaven we will have taste for only
one song, nml that w III bo the song of sal
vatiou from an eternal death to an eternal
heaven, through thu blood of thu I.ainb that
was slain.
1 see u soul coming up to Join the re
deemed In heaven. A it goes through the
gates thu old friends of that spirit come
around It and say, "What shall wo slimf"
nml tliu nuwly arrived soul says, "Sing sal
vntloii;" ami nfter awhllu an earthly den
pot Ism falls, ami u tccptcr of Iniquity I'
snapped, and churches are built where
oncu there weie superstitious mosques,
nud nngel cries to nngel, "Let UHsllig,"
nml thu answer Is, "What shall woslugr"
and nnother volco Miys, "Let u slug sal
vatiou;" and after nwhlle all the church
on earth will rush Into tliooiitspread arms
of tho church of heaven, ami while thu
righteous are ascending, and thu world I'
republic. Tho British government needs j burning, and nil things nro being wound
to boa constitutional monarchy. Austria
wants absolutism. I tut. when they come
up from earth from tlllTcrcul nationalities
they will prcforono great monarchy King
Jesus ruler over it. Ami If that monarchy
were disbanded, and It wero submitted to
nil tho hosts of heaven who should rule,
then by the unanimous sulTrages of nil thu
redeemed Christ would become tho presi
dent of tho whole universe. Magna
Chartas, bills of right, houses of bur
gesses, triumvirates, congresses, parlia
mentsnothing in tho prosoncuof Christ'
scepter, swaying over all thu people who
have entered upon thnt great glory, Oh!
can you Imagine It? What a strangu
commingling of tastes, of histories, of na
tionalities, "of nil nations nud kindreds
and people and tongues."
IN It0lli:s (IK I'URITY.
My subject advances, and tells you of the
dress of those lu heaven. Tho object of
dress In this world Is not only to veil the
iKsly, but to adorn It. Tliu God who
dresses up tho spring morning with blue
ribbon of sky around the brow and ear
rings of dew drops hung from tree branch
and mantle of crimson cloud tiling over
the shoulder and the vloletted slippers of
tliu grass for her feet I know that God
does not despise beautiful apparel. Well,
what shall wo wear In lieavenf "I saw a
great multitude clothed in wlilto robes "
It Is white! In this world wo had some
time to have ou working apparel, llrlght
anil lustrous garment would bo ridicu
lously out of place sweltering iinilil forges,
or mixing paints, or plastering ceilings, or
binding books.
In this world wo must have the working
day apparel sometimes, and wo enro not
how coarse it is. It is appropriate; but
when all thu toll of earth Is past nml there
Is no more drudgery nml no more wenrl
ties wo shall stand beforo tho throne
robed in white. On eartli wo sometimes
had to wear mourning apparel black
scarf for tho arm, black veil for tho face,
black gloves for tho hands, black baud for
tho hat. Abraham mourning for Sarah;
Isanc mourning for Itebecca; llachel
mourning for her children; David mourn
ing for Absalom; Mary mourning for Laz
arus, Kvery second of every lnluuto of
every hour of every day a heart breaks.
The earth from zone to 7.0110 und from
polo to polo Is eleft with sepulchral rent,
and tho earth can easily afford to bloom
and blossom when it Is so rich with mold
erlng life. Graves! gravesl graves! Hut
when these livreaveinent have all passed,
and there nro 110 more grave to dig and
no more colllns to make and no more sor
row to suffer, wo shall pull off Oil mourn
ing and bo robed in white. I see a soul go
tug right up from nil this scene of sin and
.rouble Into glory. I s.-om to hear liiiusay:
I journey forth rejolclm;
r'roiu this dark vnlo of tears.
To heavenly Joy anil freedom
From earthly cure and fears.
When Christ my Imti shall gather
All his redeemed again,
Ills kingdom to Inherit
Uuod uh:ht till then.
I hear my Saviour calling;
The joyful hour has couio.
Tho nuuel guard are ready
To guide inu to our homo.

My subject advances, and tells you of the

that would have meant sin. Hut it is n
