Sida 235 - ALMIGHTY Lord and everlasting God, vouchsafe, we beseech thee, to direct, sanctify, and govern both our hearts and bodies in the ways of thy laws and in the works of thy commandments...
Sida 93 - Of thy paternal splendours, and the pomp Of those who fill thy courts in highest heaven, The radiant Cherubim ; — accept the thanks Which we, thy humble Creatures, here convened, Presume to offer ; we, who — from the breast — Of the frail earth, permitted to behold The faint reflections only of thy face — Are yet exalted, and in soul adore !

Sida 107 - And yet I know past all doubting, truly — A knowledge greater than grief can dim— I know, as he loved, he will love me duly — Yea better — e'en better than I love him. And as I walk by the vast calm river, The awful river so dread to see, I say, ' Thy breadth and thy depth for ever Are bridged by his thoughts that cross to me.
Sida 104 - Who, hopeless, lays his dead away, Nor looks to see the breaking day Across the mournful marbles play! Who hath not learned, in hours of faith, The truth to flesh and sense unknown, That Life is ever lord of Death And Love can never lose its own...
