TE5 Storlc In the lleavena Knoweth
Her Appointed Time, but My People
Know Kot the JFudg;u.ent ot the Lord."
Jer. 8 : VI I.
Brooklyn, Oct. 21. Rev. Dr. Tal
mage, who has left India and is nov
on his homeward journe3r, has selected
as the subject for his sermon to-day
throug-h the press, '-October Thougrhts,"
his text beinar Jeremiah 8:viL
When God would set fast a beautiful
thoug-ht, he plants it in a tree. When
he would put it afloat he fashions it
into a fish. When he -would have it
g-lide the air, he moulds it into a bird.
My text speaks of four birds of beauti
ful instinct the stork, of such strong
affection that it is allowed familiarly
to come in Ilolland and Germany, and
build its nest over the doorway; the
sweet-dispositioned turtle dove, mingling-
in color white and black, and
brown, and ashen, and cheistnut; the
crane, xvith voice like the clang- of a
trumpet; the swallows, swift as a dart
shot out of the bow of heaven, falling-,
mounting-, skimming-, sailing- four
birds started by the prophet twenty
five centuries ago, yet fly ing- on through
the ages, with rousing- truth under
g-lossy wing- and in the clutch of stout
claw. I suppose it may have been this
very season of the year autumn and
the prophet out-of-doors, thinking- of
the impenitence of the people of his
day, hears a great cry overhead.
Is'ow, you know it is no easy thing
for one with ordinary delicacy of eye
sight to look into the deep blue of
noonday heaven; but the prophet looks
up, and there are flocks of storks, and
turtle doves, and cranes, and swallows
drawn out in long- lines for flight
southward. As is their habit, the
cranes had arranged themselves in two
lines making- an anple, a wedge split
ting the air with wild velocity, the old
crane, with commanding call bidding
them onward; while the towns, and
the cities, and the continents slid un
der them. The prophet, almost blinded
from looking into the dazzling heav
ens, stoops down and begins to think
how much superior the birds are in
sagacity about their safety than men
about theirs; and he puts his hand upon
the pen, and begins to write: "The
stork in the heaven knoweth her ap
pointed times; and the turtle and the
crane and the swallow observe the
time of their coming; but my people
know not the judgment of the Lord."
If you were in the field to-day, in
the clump of trees at the corner of the
field, you would see a convention of
birds, noisy as the American congress
the last night before adjournment, or
as the English parliament when some
unfortunate member proposes more
economy in the queen's household a
convention of birds all talking- at once,
moving and passing resolutions on the
subject of migration; some proposing
to go to-morrow, some moving that
they go to-day, but all unanimous in
the fact -that they must go soon, for
they have marching orders from the
Lord xvritten on the first white sheet
of frost, and in
changing- leaves,
ed kingfisher,
the pictorial of the
There is not a bclt
a chaffinch, or a
tire crested wren,
or a red legged
or a plover,
partridge but
expects to spend the winter at
the south, for the apartments
have already been ordered for them in
South America or in Africa; and after
thousands of miles of flight, they will
stop in the very tree where they spent
last January. Farewell, bright plum
age! Until spring weather, away! Fly
on, great band of heavenly musicians!
Strew the continents with music, and
whether from Ceylon isle, or Carolinian
swamps, or Brazilian groves men see
your wings or hear your voice, may
they yet bethink themselves of the
solemn words of the text: "The stork
in the heaven knoweth her appointed
tims; and the turtle and the crane
and the swallow observe the time of
their coming; but my people know not
the judgment of the Lord."
I propose so far as God may help me,
in this sermon, carrying- out the idea
of the text, to show that the birds of
the air have more sagacity than men.
And I begin by particularizing and
saying- that they mingle music with
their work. The most serious under
taking of a bird's life is this annual
flight southward. Naturalists tell us
that they arrive thin and weary, and
plumage ruffled, and yet they px sing
ing all the wa3"; the ground, the lower
line of the music, the sky, the upper
line of the music, themselves the notes
scattered up and down between. I
suppose their song gives elasticity to
their wing and helps on with the jour
nev, dwindling- a thousand miles into
four hundred. Would God that we
were as wise as they in mingling Chris
tian song with our every day work! I
believe there is such a thing as taking
the pitch of Christian devotion in the
morning and keeping it all the day. I
think we might take some of the dull
est, heaviest, most disagreeable work
of our life, and set it to the tune of
"Antioch" or "Mount I'isgah."
It is a g-ood sign when you hear a work
man whistle. It is a better sign when
you. hear him hum a roundelay. It is
a. still better sign when you hear him
.sing- the words of Isaac Watts or Charles
Wesley. A violin ehorded and strung,
if something accidentally btrike it,
makes music, and I suppose there is
such a thing1 as having our hearts so
attuned by divine grace, that even the
rough collisions of life will make a
heavenly vibration. I do not believe
that the power of Christian song has yet
been fully tried. I believe that if you
could roll the "Old Hundred" doxolog-y
though the street, it would put an end
to any panic! I believe that the dis
cords,"and the sorrows, and the sins of
the world are to be swept out by heaven
bora hallelujahs. . Soine one asked
Haydn, the celebrated musician, why he
ihvays composed such cheerful music.
'Why," he said, "I can't do other
wise. When I think of God my soul is
so full of joy that the notes leap and
dance from my pen." I wish we might
all exult melodiously before the Lord.
With God for our Father, and Christ
for our Savior, and heaven for our
home, and angels for future compan
ions, and eternity for a lifetime, we
should strike all the notes of joy. Go
ing through the wilderness of this
world let us remember that w e are on
the way to the summery clime of hea
ven, and from the migratory popula
tions flying through this autumnal air
learn always to keep singing-.
Children of the heavenly King,
As ye journey, sweetly sing,
ting your Savior's worthy praise,
Glorious in his works and ways.
Ve are traveling home to God,
in tne way your fathers trod ;
They are happy now, and we
SSoon their happiness shall see.
The church of God never will be a
triumphant church until it becomes a
singing- church.
I go further, and remark that the
birds of the air are wiser than we, in
the fact that in their migration they
fly very high. During the summer,
when they are in the fields, they often
come within reach of the gun. but
when they start for their annual flight
southward, they take their places mid
heaven and g-o straight as a mark. The
longest rifle that was ever brought to
shoulder can not reach them. Would
to God that we were as wise as the
stork and crane in our flight heaven
ward. We fly so low that we are with
in easy range of the world, the flesh
and the devil. We are brought dow.i
by temptations that ought not to come
within a mile of reaching' us. Oh, for
some of the faith of George Miller of
England, and Klfred Cookman once of
the church militant, now of the
church triumphant! So poor is the
type of piety in the church of God
now, that men actually caricature the
idea that there is any such thing- as a
higher life. Moles never did believe in
eagles. Hut, my brethren, because
we have not reached these heights
ourselves, shall we deride the fact that
there are any such heights? A man
was once talking to Brunei, the famous
engineer, about the length of the rail
road from London to Bristol The en
gineer said, "It is not very great. We
shall have, after a while, a steamer
running from England to New York."
They laughed him to scorn; but we
have gone so far now that we have
ceased to laugh at anything- as impos
sible for the Lord? I do not believe
that God exhausted all his grace
in Paul, and Latimer and Edward
I'ayson, I believe there are
higher points of Christian attainment
to be reached in the future ages of the
Christian world. Vou tell me that
Paul went up to the tiptop of the Alps
of Christian attainment. Then I tell
you that the stork and crane ha ve found
above the Aljis plenty of room for free
flying-. We go out and we conquer our
temptations by the grace of God, and
lie down. On the morrow, those
temptations rally themselves and at
tack us, and by the grace of God we
defeat them again, but, saying- all the
time in the old encampment, we have
the same old battles to fig-ht over.
Why not whip out our temptations,
and then forward march, making- one
raid through the enemy's country,
stopping not until we break
ranks after the last victory. Do.
my brethren, let us have some novelty
of combat, at any rat, by chang
ing, by going on, by making- advance
ment, trading- off our stale prayers
about sins we ought to have quit long
ago, going on toward a higher state of
Christian character, and routing out
sins that we have never thoug-ht of yet.
The fact is, if the church of trod if we
as individuals, made rapid advance
ment in the Christian life, these stereo
typed prayers we have been making
for ten or fifteen j-ears would be as in
appropriate to us as the shoes, and the
hats, and the coats we wore ten or
fifteen years ago, Oh for a higher
flight in the Christian life, the stork
and the .-rane in their migration teach
ing us the lesson!
Dear Lord, and shall we ever live.
At this poor dying rate
Our love so faint, so cold to thee.
And thine to us go great ?
Ag-ain, I remark that the birds of
the air are wiser than we, because they
know when to start. If you should go
out now and shout, "Stop, storks and
cranes, don't be in a hurry !" they would
say, "No, we can not stop; last night
we heard the roaring in the woods
bidding us away, and the shrill flute
of the north wind has sounded the re
treat. We must go. We must g-o. "
So they g-ather themselves into compa
nies, and turning not aside for storm
or mountain top, or shock of musketry,
over land and sea, straight as an arrow
to the mark they g o. And if you come
out this morning- with a sack of corn
and throw it in the fields and try to
get them to stop, they are now so far
up they would hardly see it. They are
on their way south. You could not stop
them. Oh, that we were a.s wise about
the best time to start for God and
heaven! We say, "Wait until it is a
little later in the season of mercy.
Wait until some of these green leaves
of hope are all dried up and ha ve been
scattered. Wait until next year."
After awhile we start, and it is too
late, and we perish in the way when
(rod's wrath is kindled but a little.
There are, you know, exceptional
cases, where birds have started too
late, and in the morning you have
found them dead on the snow. And
there are thosi who have perished
half way between the xvorld and Christ.
They waited until the last sickness,
when the mind was pone, or they were
on the express train going at forty
miles an hour, and thev came to the
bridge and the "draw was up"
thev went down. How long
repent and pray? Two seconds!
