MAN,

MAN was made in the image of God; but sin has taken away his beauty and holiness.

Though sullied and dishonored, still divine!”

THE body is the habitation of the soul. The old Saxong called it the soul's house.

Runs to each avenue, and shrieks for help.”

THE HEAD-THE CHIEF PART OF THE BODY.

THE head of man is the seat of the soul.

“Remove yon skull from out the scattered heaps!
Is that a temple where a god may dwell?
Look on its broken arch, its ruined wall,
Its chambers desolate, and portals foul:
Yes, this was once ambition's airy hall,
The dome of thought, the palace of the soul!"
