Seite 81 - Pray for my soul. More things are wrought by prayer Than this world dreams of. Wherefore, let thy voice Rise like a fountain for me night and day. For what are men better than sheep or goats That nourish a blind life within the brain, If, knowing God, they lift not hands of prayer Both for themselves and those who call them friend? For so the whole round earth is every way Bound by gold chains about the feet of God.
Seite 335 - Then most musical and solemn, bringing back the olden times, With their strange, unearthly changes, rang the melancholy chimes. Like the psalms from some old cloister, when the nuns sing in the choir; And the great bell tolled among them, like the chanting of a friar.
Seite 97 - He married my sisters with five pound, or twenty nobles apiece, so that he brought them up in godliness and fear of God. He kept hospitality for his poor neighbours, and some alms he gave to the poor. And all this he did...
Seite 219 - For witness is a common name to all. Surrounded thus with friends of every sort, Deluded Absalom forsakes the court; Impatient of high hopes, urged with renown, And fired with near possession of a crown. Th' admiring crowd are dazzled with surprise, And on his goodly person feed their eyes.
Seite 337 - For, indeed, the greatest glory of a building is not in its stones, nor in its gold. Its glory is in its Age, and in that deep sense of voicefulness, of stern watching, of mysterious sympathy, nay, even of approval or condemnation, which we feel in walls that have long been washed by the passing waves of humanity.
Seite 379 - I wind about, and in and out, With here a blossom sailing, And here and there a lusty trout, And here and there a grayling, And here and there a foamy flake Upon me, as I travel With many a silvery waterbreak Above the golden gravel, And draw them all along, and flow To join the brimming river; For men may come and men may go, But I go on forever.
Seite 390 - Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not inquire wisely concerning this.
Seite 15 - In the first part of the morning I drive my sheep to their pasture, and stand over them in heat and in cold with dogs, lest the wolves destroy them. I lead them back to their folds, and milk them twice a day; and I move their folds, and make cheese and butter; and I am faithful to my lord.
Seite 228 - The LORD God of gods, the LORD God of gods, he knoweth, and Israel he shall know ; if it be in rebellion, or if in transgression against the LORD, (save us not this day...
Seite 214 - Youth, beauty, graceful action seldom fail, But common interest always will prevail ; And pity never ceases to be shown ' To him who makes the people's wrongs his own. The crowd that still believe their kings oppress With lifted hands their young Messiah bless : Who now begins his progress to ordain With chariots, horsemen, and a numerous train ; From east to west his glories he displays And, like the sun, the promised land surveys.
