Excerpt from A Sermon Preached in the Chapel of Yale College, June 1, 1851, in Reference to the Death of Albert Hebard: Just Before the Close of His College Life

Author of life and of death should open for them the door of that great temple, of which this life is the ves tibule. They die as a shock of corn is gathered in its season. Having fulfilled their part they withdraw from the stage, to reappear as actors in the drama of eternal life. In regard to infants, again, strange as the fact is, that so many are born amid maternal pangs just to drink in the sunlight and to die, or that a troop of mortal disease lurk around the path of childhood this general fact fails to surprise us, for we reduce it to a more general one extending beyond the bounds of the human species. Almost every tribe of plants bears innumerable blossoms which are wasted without running into seed. Al most all animal existence is multiplied ou a scale to provide against a thousand accidents. In man kind the sway of death over the earlier years is not the result of one form of society or another, but stretches through all; somewhat limited, indeed, by the comforts and knowledge of civilized races but still showing itself a law, which is likely to extend beyond all the improvements of time. For this law of early death, though in the sorrows and pains which ittcauses a fruit of sin, is evidence also of Divine love by the precious results of such deaths to survivors; and to say the least, may be attended with the immortal gain of those who are thus early called away.(8)
