ZECHARIAH, i. 5.
" Your Fathers, where tore they? And the Prophets, do they live forever an
THE fashion of this world passeth away: Like a vast theatre, its scenery is perpetually changing-One generation of men cometh on the stage after another: Every individual performs his part and makes his exit, and is geen no more. Melancholy reflection! We look back upon the years that are past, with regret, for those who filled their station with propriety; who were among the virtuous, the honorable, and the good in their day. They are gone down to the chambers of the dead; they have ceased from their labors and their prayers, from their works of piety and benevolence, and from all their schemes of usefulness in the world. We have lost the benefit of their influence, their living example, and their personal instruction. “ Your Fathers, where are they? And the Prophets, do they live forever?
On such subjects as these, the mind naturally dwells, in the awful crisis of bereavement, when a holy Providence demands the surren. der of our friends to his wise determinations. There is a propriety in considering them with attention, especially in the hour consecrated to the remembrance of departed excellence. If we improve them as we ought, 'we may derive from them, many useful lessons of instruction.
