Excerpt from Our National Union: A Thanksgiving Discourse, Delivered in the First Trinitarian Congregational Church, November 29, 1860

II Chronicles, xxx:12. Also the hand of God was to give them one heart.

I have selected this text as expressive of the fact that National unity of counsel and will, is the gift of God; and fitly to be ranked with themes claiming grateful commemoration. It stands in this passage, also historically connected with a most memorable and genuine Thanksgiving. Judah and Israel, for more than two hundred years, had been disunited, much to the opprobrium and disaster, moral and political, of both. Hezekiah had at that time sent couriers about to the entire Hebrew nation, inviting them once more to unite at least in the great National Festival of the Passover. They were variously received in different quarters. But to some of the people "God gave one heart to do the King's commandment." The consequence was that they kept a most remarkable Thanksgiving; and for even twice the usual number of seven days. For, says the Chronicle,

"The children of Israel that were present at Jerusalem kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with great gladness: and the Levites and the Priests praised the Lord day by day, singing with loud instruments unto the Lord.

"And Hezekiah spake comfortably unto all the Levites that taught the good knowledge of the Lord: and they did eat throughout the feast seven days, offering peace offerings, and making confession to the Lord God of their fathers.

"And the whole assembly took counsel to keep other seven days; and they kept other seven days with gladness.

"For Hezekiah, king of Judah, did give to the congregation a thousand bullocks and seven thousand sheep; and the princes gave to the congregation a thousand bullocks and ten thousand sheep; and a great number of Priests sanctified themselves.

"And all the congregation of Judah, with the Priests and the Levites, and all the congregation that came out of Israel, and the strangers that came out of the land of Israel, and that dwelt in Judah rejoiced.

"So there was great joy in Jerusalem: for since the time of Solomon, the Son of David king of Israel, there was not the like in Jerusalem.

"Then the Priests and the Levites arose and blessed the people: and their voice was heard, and their prayer came up to his holy dwelling place, even unto Heaven."
