* If I take.
Light has been proved, by many experiments, to travel at the
astonishing rate of 194,188; miles in one second of time; and
comes from the sun to the earth, a distance of 95,513,794
miles in 8; minutes and nearly 12; seconds! But, could I even
fly upon the wings or rays of the morning light, which
diffuses itself with such velocity over the globe from east to
west, instead of being beyond Thy reach, or by this sudden
transition be able to escape Thy notice, Thy arm could still
at pleasure prevent or arrest my progress, and I should still
be encircled with the immensity of Thy essence. The sentiment
in this noble passage is remarkably striking and the
description truly sublime.
* the wings.
