From every place below the skies The grateful song, the fervent prayer,- The incense of the heart, -may rise To heaven, and find acceptance there.

A Quote by John Pierpont on execution, force, god, and weapons

A weapon that comes down as still As snowflakes fall upon the sod; But executes a freeman's will, As lightning does the will of God; And from its force nor doors nor locks Can shield you,-'t is the ballot-box.
