עמוד 338 - Whofoever, therefore, fhall confefs me before men, him will I confefs alfo before my Father which is in heaven.
עמוד 128 - Gauls' approach; th' approaching Gauls, Obscure in night, ascend, and seize the walls. The gold dissembled well their yellow hair, And golden chains on their white necks they wear. Gold are their vests; long Alpine spears they wield, And their left arm sustains a length of shield. Hard by, the leaping Salian priests advance; And naked thro' the streets the mad Luperci dance, In caps of wool; the targets dropp'd from heav'n.
עמוד 48 - Self-born, begotten by the parent flame In which he burn'd, another, and the same; Who not by corn, or herbs his life sustains, But the sweet essence of Amomum drains : And watches the rich gums Arabia bears, While yet in tender dew they drop their tears. He (his five centuries of life fulfill'd) His...
עמוד 86 - High as the Mother of the Gods in place, And proud, like her, of an immortal race. Then, when in pomp she makes the Phrygian round, With golden turrets on her temples crown'd; A hundred gods her sweeping train supply; Her offspring all, and all command the sky.
עמוד 49 - When grown to manhood he begins his reign, And with stiff pinions can his flight sustain, He lightens of its load the tree that bore His father's royal sepulchre before, And his own cradle : This (with pious care) Plac'd on his back, he cuts the buxom air, Seeks the Sun's city, and his sacred church, And decently lays down his burden in the porch.
עמוד ii - Who gain'd no Title, and who loft no Friend, ' Ennobled by himfelf, by all approv'd, * Prais'd, wept, and honour'd, by the Mufe he lov'd.
עמוד 247 - You have yet an opportunity, by God's blessing, to secure to you and your posterity the quiet enjoyment of your religion and liberties, if you are not wanting to yourselves, but will exert the ancient vigour of the English nation : but I tell you plainly, my opinion is, if you do not lay hold on this occasion, you have no reason to hope for another.
עמוד 39 - THE man refolv'd and fteady to his truft, Inflexible to ill, and obftinately juft, May the rude rabble's infolence defpife, Their fenfelefs clamours and tumultuous cries ; The tyrant's fiercenefs he beguiles, And the ftern brow, and the harfli voice defies, And with fuperior greatnefs fmiles.
עמוד 70 - Their images, the relics of the wreck, Torn from the naked poop, are tided back By the wild waves, and rudely thrown ashore, Lie impotent ; nor can themselves restore. The vessel sticks, and shows her open'd side, And on her shatter'd mast the mews in triumph ride.
