Pagina 11 - THOU hidden love of God, whose height, Whose depth unfathomed no man knows; I see from far thy beauteous light, Inly I sigh for thy repose. My heart is pained ; nor can it be At rest, till it find rest in thee.
Pagina 139 - O merciful God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the resurrection and the life; in whom whosoever believeth shall live, though he die; and whosoever liveth, and believeth in him, shall not die eternally...
Pagina 35 - OFT, in the stilly night, Ere slumber's chain has bound me, Fond Memory brings the light Of other days around me ; The smiles, the tears, Of boyhood's years, The words of love then spoken ; The eyes that shone, Now dimmed and gone, The cheerful hearts now broken ! Thus, in the stilly night, Ere Slumber's chain hath bound me, Sad Memory brings the light Of other days around me.
Pagina 20 - Why then should we read The forms of things with an unworthy eye ? She sleeps in the calm earth, and peace is here.
Pagina 24 - The umbrageous Oak, in pomp outspread, Full oft, when storms the welkin rend, Draws lightning down upon the head It promised to defend. But Thou art true, incarnate Lord, Who didst vouchsafe for man to die ; Thy smile is sure, thy plighted word No change can falsify...
Pagina 35 - Oh ! ever thus, from childhood's hour, I've seen my fondest hopes decay ; I never loved a tree or flower, But 'twas the first to fade away. I never nursed a dear gazelle, To glad me with its soft black eye, • But when it came to know me well, And love me, it was sure to die...
Pagina 11 - Tis mercy all that Thou hast brought My mind to seek her peace in Thee, Yet while I seek but find Thee not No peace my wandering soul shall see...
Pagina 31 - Ask what thou wilt?" Lord, I would seize the golden hour : I pray to be released from guilt, And freed from sin and Satan's power. 2 More of thy presence, Lord, impart ; More of thine image let me bear : Erect thy throne within my heart, And reign without a rival there. 3 Give me to read my pardon sealed, And from thy joy to draw my strength...
Pagina 36 - When I remember all The friends so linked together, I've seen around me fall Like leaves in wintry weather, I feel like one Who treads alone Some banquet hall deserted, Whose lights are fled, Whose garlands dead, And all but he departed.
Pagina 28 - THOU knowest, Lord, the weariness and sorrow Of the sad heart that comes to Thee for rest : Cares of to-day, and burdens for to-morrow, Blessings implored, and sins to be confessed, I come before Thee at Thy gracious word, And lay them at Thy feet — Thou knowest, Lord.
