TEXAS IN 1850. 57
pure light of truth over the benighted regions of Mexico.
From the Sabbath schools of Texas may there be transplanted
trees which shall yield a sweeter perfume upon
the mountains of Mexico, than her rich groves of
orange and pomegranate! " How beautiful upon the
mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings,
that publisheth peace: that bringeth good tidings of
good, that publisheth salvation, that saith unto Zion, thy
God reigneth !"
Let Texas, then, be the grand lever, and ere the nineteenth
century closes, Mexico may be seen " sitting at
the feet of Jesus," clothed in moral beauty, and " in
her right mind, as it regards the great things pertaining
to eternal life."
