DaviJ c-fjmes t tins exclamation from a wiJe
survey of the divine work and way. Hi vision
sweeps a wide horizon. He Ljoks into the eky ;
hia eye rangc9 out over the great and wide fea in
which leviathan is made to play; the mountains
pasFwiftly before him; the fields arc in view;
the pcope of ereation with its wondroiu" adapta
tions anl Iile is umler his purvey, lhe light
that bhines is to him as the garment of (iod.
The outstretched hcaveas, and the waters and the
clouds, and wind.-, and solid earth, are all his
manifold works, the riches of Lis goodness to hi
creatures. The l.jrds have their nests, the stork
lier houi-e, the conies their rock, the wild goats
their hills, and the young lions their meat from
Iod. The sim and moon have their times, and
man his day of toil and his night of rest.
From this general view he ruins up his praise
O Lord, how manifold ar thy works: in wis
dom hast thou made them all : the earth is full
of thy riches." Sky and pea and air and land
are all full of thy riches.' And this means,
not that Jod lias treasures in the hills, and grain
in the fields, and trees and flowers in the wilder
ness for himself, hut rather that all the earth is
full of the riches of his goodness to his creatures.
Ilia riches are his provisions for their welfare and
hnppiness. Such ever arc true riches. They are
means for happiness in others' good. IF they
arc otherwise they cease to be riches, and become
encumbrances, or curses. No broad acres, or
hoarded treasures, or stocks and stores can be
real riches to us unless they are instruments of
our love and benevolence.
To cross Jod's great sea, to travel on conti
nent, to fly, aa it were, over fertile plains, can
not but make one feci, as David felt, that the
earth is indeed full of these riches of Clod, and
that he has provisions in it for all the life that he
has created upon it, and that it all shows forth
his greatness, his love, his providence, and hi
CJod is great, ami iod is good ; his works are
manifold, and made in wisdom ; his riches fill the
earth these arc the impressions that come upon
us, when wc come into comprehensive views of
his works and ways. In the routine of our daily
cares, the commonplace duties of our plodding
life, our ideas of Iod, and his goodness, are
prone to littleness. AVe do not always have full
impressions of his majesty and dominion. Tim
narrower our life grows, the less of praise there
is apt to be in it. .V wise use of all travel and
observation is to learn more of the divine wisdom
and goodness, and to have the heart enlarge" I
with conceptions of his power and love.
During these months of summer, many of us
are wont to go out lor change and rest anil phys
ical renewing. Some of our number arc still
journeying afar ; some have returned from excur
sions on the home islands, others from extended
travel in the old home lands. In God's goodness
and through your kindness, I have been permit
ted to leave for a time my beaten paths, to be
upon the winged ship and ujion tho greater land
to see something of mountain and plain and
river ar.d city, and the various life that pervades
the busy world all so full of the divine provi
sions for the creatures' good ; all showing forth
( Jod's manifold works, and making me feel anew
that the earth is the Lord's and the fullness
thereof. It is in this feeling or praiBe that 1 re
turn to you, and I know not what better I can
do to-day than to speak to you, though in a very
crude and hasty way, of some oF these impres
sions oF (.Jod's goodness that I bring back with
me. And if I at all voice for any of you also
your own thanks and feelings, it will be so much
First of all then, let mc say that 1 bring back
with mc no slight impression of the divine good
ness to me in person, and of hia care over you as
well. That goodness of his, celebrated in ouv
text, I feel has lcen extended to mc as one of
those for whom he cares in the wide range of his
providence. I went away weary and jaded ; Ac
has returned me in vigor and strength. For this
I desire thus publicly, in his sanctuary, to give
thanks and bless his name. Doubtless all of you
who have in any degree received a like benefit,
feel a like gratitude. You feel it for yourselves
and you feel it for your friends. And how fitting
it is that wc should offer such thanksgiving in
the courts of the Ixird. Wc can unite with
David and say, 4 lilcss the Lord, O my ponl,
who hcalcth all thy diseases, who redeemcth thy
life from destruction."
It is a matter for thankfulness also that when
we journey, whether for hundreds or thousands
of miles, it may be by different manners of con
veyance, and through different climates and per
haps in perilous places, that no mishap or serious
sicKness has occurred, and tliat not 6o much as a
hair has ?een made to fall from the head by any
calamity. For this I desire jicrsonally, in my
own behalf and yours, here in his courts, to give
thanks. "Tho Lord is thy keeper, the Lord is
thy shade upon thy right hand. The Lord shall
preserve thee from evil, the Lord shall preserve
thy going out and thy coming in.''
It i9 ever a matter for thankfulness also to be
permitted to look upon the faces of old friends,
whose joy and greeting arc as a healing to the
soul. In this respect 1 owe thanks, and doubt
less some of you get more than 1.
I must say also that not the least among the
favors for which I feel gratitude, is the entire
freedom from care for my work and the church
here, that 1 have been permitted to enjoy. 1
have had no reason to feel otherwise than assured,
that it was well with you, and that the eamc
hand that kept me was keeping you. If death
has come among yon it has been without his
gloom or terror. 'Sickness has u-t prevailed.
The word of life has not failed you. You have
been favored and blessed in your ministerial sup
ply. For all this our common gratitude is due.
'Passing from the divine goodness to mc and to
you in person. 1 remark in the next place, that
one cannot well journey out upon this worlJ of
ours without having new impressions of its great
ness and importance.
The ocean is great, and it shows the great God-
I I is way is everywhere in the trackless deep.
The strength of his arm is in its waves. His
glory is in its gorgeous sunsets. Ilis breath of
prosperity is in its wafting winds. The riches of
his goodness in bringing gifts to men am iu its
commerce. It is the store-house of his waters
with which he refreshes all lands. It is the em
blem of his own majesty and infinitude. As we
sail upon its broad bosom it is ever reaching out
'x?yond our sight. Wc hasten towards its horizon
but reach it not. It typifies to us continually
him who is illimitable and incomjrehensible.
I low strong is he who lixes its bounds which it
cannot pass. How mighty is he who holds it all
as in the hollow of his hand. How rich is he
who in his riches to men can a9brd to spread so
wide a waste which yet is not a waste but the
type of his own fullness, and the world's unfail
ing fount of life and blessing.
And how great also arc the concincnts. I was
but upon the farther shore of one of the newest,
and yet the great and busy world was there.
There were the hum of human life and the rush
of trade, the din of industry, the prodigious cn
! ergies of men working out problems of fortune,
j and of every human ambition.
Here upon these small islands there are but
few types of scenery. They are grand ones, but
' there is little variety to them. There is but lit-
lift-. We scarcely L;ve t!;e w rl 1 i;i miniature.

t-anJertti from it, that wc are a itul part of it.
'loubtlcss do realize this mere as we g to
areer riaccs. aca icei more ri uic zrcai worn

reach of land. We can it is true read of what '
is transpiring in tl.e great world, but r, i where j
the fuller tides of lif' are flowing, t- be amid in
dustries of many different kinds, ti see the mani- .
I'olJ products of shop and field and mine, and :
streams of prosperity flowing in many different j
channel, to travel through varied and extended
scenes, no doubt helps us to realize more the i
riches of Jod's goodness and the greatness of I
country and of the world, and the importance of !
the issues that are pending and waging. We j
can, for instance, look upon the United States as .
a country pictured on the map. We may teil off '
the miles of its length and breadth. "We enn '
think how long are its rivers and mountain j
ranges, but to realize us extent one neeas to
spend days on the swift trains. He should pass
from one mountain chain to another, through
valleys that seem interminable. He should look
upon territory, so broad that whole nations could
sleep in their boom. He should follow water
courses for hundreds f miles, and then find that
! they empty themselves into 3-et larger rivers that
extend on for thousands of miles more. He
j should go from great city to great city each the
i centre of trade and exchange, and 'influence,
I financial, moral, social and religious, for many
j lesser ones, which are yet great in themselves,
j He should go the length and breadth of states
! that are almost empires in themselves, and survey
i the countless homes of industry and look upon
the interminable miles of grain fields, and count
i up the acres of furnaces and humming factories,
; and then think what room there is for cities yet
! unbuilt, and for industries yet undeveloped, and
j for population yet unborn, and for enterprises
j-et unconeeivei, an-i ior greatness yet un
achieved. Skeptics tay that our irorld is small, too small
to be the theatre of Buch great doings on the
part of (Jod, as are involved in the gospel scheme
of redemption too small to be visited by the re
vealing ( Jod in person and to be ransomed by the
divine son. They say that it is but a speck amid
all the great spheres, and so it is ; and yet how
great may even a single nation be great not
only in extent and resources, but great in what
Jod has wrought for it, and in the exhibition of
his power and love and purposes great as the
theatre of destinies and aa the developing place
of immortal and divine ideas.
We feel this more in a great land that is full
! of stir. Wc feci that there millions and millions
! of immortal souls made in Cod's image and each
; of priceless worth, are to live and find dcvelop
j mcnt and prepare for eternity that there is to
be the home of mighty influences and mighty
works of redeeming grace. The fruits unto eter
i nal life that one such great country may bear are
! great beyond our power of computation. Having
I in itself almost every variety of climate and of
; resource, wit!, coal-beds underlaying vast reaches
! of it, and precious metals scattered on many
mountain sides, and fertile acres reaching out
into many braid plains, it affords a field fir every
; variety of human taste and ability. It is not all
; hill, or all valley, not all mine, or all farm, but
: there is a placo for the treasure and a place for
I the wheat. The failure of no single industry
! brings disastei, for the channels of prosperity are
many. Jnerearetne snowy neignts tnat lorm
and feed the rivers and the valleys that are
watered by them. Every energy may find its
exercise ; everj man may find his home, and every
character its development. The United States is
but one of the great countries. I have used it
but in illustration. Others may be yet more im
portant, but it helps us to understand the great
ness and importance of this world of ours. To
save such a world, to possess it all for Christ, to
redeem it to li s service, to fill it with His praise,
to have it peopled thickly with those that are
pure and prospered and blessed in His love and
righteousness ; how great and grand the work and
mission ! Must not the faith to do this be a con
quering one ? Not a timid contracted one, but
one that shall enlarge itself to the greatness that
Iod has put upon the earth, and that seeks to
make this worid to bo as full of the riches of His
grace as He his made it to be full of the riches of
Again, one cannot well journey out upon the
earth without new impressions of the goodness of
the divine arrangements in another respect. I
mean that amid all this variety of place and
clime and all this diversity of interests that exist
on earth, (Jod has so ordered it that there is to
each and all of us a home. He has appointed to
every one a place. Not only the coney has its
rock and the rtork her nest, and the wild goat his
hill, but man also his home. Cod has set us in
families and places, and our local attachments,
our accumulating interests, our strengthening
tics, draw and bind us each to our place and
home. We oil come to love our dwelling place.
We all have a feeling of pride and satisfaction in
our town or city or country. )n the islands and
all over the broad Continents, throughout regions
as diverse from each other as can be, on the shore,
in the vallejs, on the mountain sides, in the
deserts even, families live and have their home,
and feel thct it is the best place for them.
Wherever wc journey, it is remarkable that we
enter no city, no town, no State, or kingdom, the
praises of which we do not hear celebrated by its
inhabitants. Each locality is thought to have
its advantages and attractions over others. The
San Franciscan would not live in New York. The
New Yorker would not live in London. To the
vast body oF Californians, the islands are away
out of the world, while to many of us here no
other clime or country can compare with this.
While this home feeling or partiality may give
rise to a little foolish local boasting and pride, as
it often does, between cities and countries, it is
yet a most happy provision in our nature for our
contentment and welfare. It prevents local un
easiness and gives permanence to society ami
foeters enterprise, and establishes the growth and
prosperity of each different part of the world. 1 1
is one of the riches of the divine goodness that
things are so ordered, that our home is home to
us, that we love our place, and arc drawn toward
it. This comparing of different places of resi
dence and country that is so common, is, after
all, but tho setting forth of the excellence of one's
own place. It is a kind of thankfulness that wc
live where wc do. It is but an evidence that
I Jod has made all places to be best for somebody,
and that the whole earth everywhere is full of
His riches. The many and strange questions that
I had to answer about these islands, and the
many inquiries as to how 1 liked this place or
that, made this to be by no means a slight im
pression upon mc. And I need not add that we
who live here under these bright skies need not be
envious of those whose lot has fallen in other and
Again, the traveler must be a dull observer
w ho docs not receive deeper and fuller impressions
of the world's rapid progress, and of the widen
ing reach of human enterprise. The world is
younger and more progressive than the prominent
men that arc in it. l ew as they advance in life
keep abreast of the times. The young push out
in enterprise Ixyond the old. Younger hands are
on the helm of affairs. Standards of success are
rising in every department of life. The race fjr
preferment is quickening. The power of worldly
forces is increasing. Fresh currents of thought
have a world-wide sweep. New ideas spread
everywhere with lightning rapidity. New phi
losophies prevail. New infidelities arise. Quick
communication, flying trains and wires that talk
! across seas and continents, and inventions that
i revolutionize industries, facilitate combinations
i of capital and energy and produce changes, the
results of which are scarcely beginning to be re-
; alized. One can but feel that the Gospel has a
; new work to do, new problems to solve, in fact, a
new world to save. It is still the one living word,
! and the power of (Jod to the world's salvation.
' but it has new issues to meet, and a new fresh
hold on life to take. It has to take hold of this
; pushing, progressive, inquiring, scientific age,
with the same spirit, it is true, but in different
i methods from the old. It must go out to meet
men in their new paths. It must not try to put
: new wine into old bottles. If the world becomes
i more craving aud grasping, it must show more
I purely and clearly the power of love and self eac-
' rifice. It must not so much array itsel against
, the advancing times, as demonstrate its sufficiency
i to meet their needs. It does not need to take to
; itself more of the spirit of the world, but rather

it is that we are consumed by our iniquities.

with the impression that it matter not so much
where as how wc live? It is character, not place
that is the chief thing. It is what we become
and what we do, more than where cur lot may le

life" for us to do is one. One place has little ad
vantage over another in it essential elements for
a good and happy living, but the one true life in
its ends and aims and enjoyments is as different
from the other as right is from wrong, or happi
ness from misery, and that one life we can live
anywhere, and in one place about as well as in
another. The chief circumstances of life, after
all, differ but little with place. The same tempta
tions arc everywhere. The same conflicts are to
be met. Human nature is in one place what it is
in another. There are not less of selfishness and
avarice, not less sharpness and scheming in the
larger communities and countries than in the
smaller. In fact, there seems to Ie more respect
paid to pounds and pence, more eagerness and
uneasiness for extra percentage, more canvassing
of stocks and shares and investments, more money
on the brain, in the former than in the latter.
Churches there also have about the same work to
do, the same opposers to meet, the same struggles
to encounter, the same questions gf immorality
and of unbelief to face. They have the same
toiling by faith, and he who would live a life .
unto God can do it no better in one place than in
another. Hawaii is just about as good a place to
serve the Great Master in and to prepare for the
Kingdom to come in, and to go to heaven from as
any other part of the earth.
Once more. Who can visit places of former
toils and friendship without being impressed with
the changeablcness ot all that is human. Ulu
faces have changed. Streets are walked by other
feet. Stores are in other hands. Other pastors
are in the pulpits, other members are in the
pews. Other questions and interests are the
subjects of talk. Transition is everywhere. The
very progress that has been made has been
through changes some of them sad, others cheer
ing. The old towns, though grown in size, yet
seem contracted. The old brooks look smaller.
Many things have lost their relative importance.
The rich, some of them, have become poor and
the poor rich; and while our vast world and the
Great God who made it all are magnified in the
regards, the particular things, the individuals arc
less, and from it all comes the impression deep
and Btrong that blessed is the man who builds his
house upon the rock, whose hopes are anchored
upon 'the unchangeable and eternal. While
persons and places change in our impression, God
grows greater. His works seem more manifold,
and the riches of His goodness more unfailing
and boundless. He alone is great and good; the
whole earth is full of His praise. The changes
that pass over us here, the transitions we undergo,
the reverses, the removals are but the incidents of
our earthly, human, mortal life, but to be one
with God in love, to have Ilis will our will, and
His work our work, that is eternal, imperishable
life. In the wide range of His designs, that
which we count great, is ever losing its great
ness, while to know Him and have our life
moving in the plain of His will, that is our great
ness and our joy forever.
What future he will give to you aud to me we
know not, but we know that the riches of his
goodness, which fill the earth and is to all his
creatures, will not fail from us. Wc know that
that same love and care which gives to every
creature its portion, will also provide for us.
We know that the earth is full of his good things
by which he blesses his own, and that conse
quently as David argues in our psalm, Zion will
not starve. Her enemies will perish. The do
minion of evil will bo short, lie will care for
his own. Oar eong shall be therefore as io the
closing of this psalm, " Bless the Lord, ( my
soul. Praise ye the Lord."
