עמוד 261 - Love took up the harp of life, and smote on all the chords with might; Smote the chord of self, that, trembling, passed in music out of sight.
עמוד 229 - Serene will be our days and bright, And happy will our nature be, When love is an unerring light, And joy its own security. And they a blissful course may hold Even now, who, not unwisely bold, Live in the spirit of this creed ; Yet seek thy firm support, according to their need.
עמוד 149 - O'ER wayward childhood would'st thou hold firm rule, And sun thee in the light of happy faces ; Love, Hope, and Patience, these must be thy graces, And in thine own heart let them first keep school.

For this life's long night of sadness He will give thee peace and gladness. Soul, forget not in thy pains, God o'er all for ever reigns.
עמוד 116 - Dispersed along the world's wide way, When friends are far, and fond ones rove, How powerful she, to wake the thought, And start the tear, for those we love, Who watch with us, at night's pale noon, And gaze upon that silent moon.
עמוד 222 - WE speak and we read of the hero's deeds, And envy perchance his fame ; We would tread, like him, some path that leads To gaining a deathless name; And we sigh as our time is vainly spent, " Oh, 't was not for this that I was meant...
עמוד 282 - Thoughts on Personal Religion. Being a Treatise on the Christian Life in its Two Chief Elements, Devotion and Practice. By EDWARD MEYRICK GOULBURN, DD, Prependary of St. Paul's, Chaplain to the Bishop of Oxford, and one of Her Majesty's Chaplains in Ordinary. First American from the Fifth London Edition. With a Prefatory Note. By GEORGE H.
עמוד 274 - Who is Silvia ? what is she, That all our swains commend her? Holy, fair, and wise is she ; The heaven such grace did lend her, That she might admired be.
