(William S. Plumer, "The Rock of Our Salvation" 1867)

Although just now somewhat shorn of his power to persecute,
Mohammed, the prophet of Mecca, still practices his sorceries,
maddens the passions of men, holds the cup of carnal delight
to the lips of his besotted worshipers, and endeavors to light
up the horrors of the grave by pointing to a Paradise of sin!

(This apt summary of the Islam religion was written in 1867!)
