Seite 268 - ... upon the deck's smooth face, Linked arm in arm, how pleasant here to pace; Or, o'er the stern reclining, watch below The foaming wake far widening as we go. On stormy nights when wild north-westers rave, How proud a thing to fight with wind and wave! The dripping sailor on the reeling mast Exults to bear, and scorns to wish it past. Where lies the land to which the ship would go? Far, far ahead, is all her seamen know. And where the land she travels from? Away, Far, far behind, is all that they...
Seite 134 - Worshipped, except the currency : Swear not at all ; for, for thy curse Thine enemy is none the worse : At church on Sunday to attend Will serve to keep the world thy friend : Honour thy parents ; that is, all From whom advancement may befall ; Thou shalt not kill ; but need'st not strive Officiously to keep alive...
Seite 32 - To veer, how vain! On, onward strain, Brave barks! In light, in darkness, too, Through winds and tides one compass guides To that and your own selves be true.
Seite 84 - Some others, also, to themselves, Who scarce so much as doubt it, Think there is none, when they are well, And do not think about it. But country folks who live beneath The shadow of the steeple; The parson and the parson's wife, And mostly married people ; Youths green and happy in first love, So thankful for illusion ; And men caught out in what the world Calls guilt, in first confusion ; And almost every one when age, Disease, or sorrows strike him, Inclines to think there is a God, Or something...
Seite 47 - O ONLY Source of all our light and life, Whom as our truth, our strength, we see and feel, But whom the hours of mortal moral strife Alone aright reveal ! Mine inmost soul, before Thee inly brought, Thy presence owns ineffable, divine ; Chastised each rebel self-encentered thought, My will adoreth Thine.
Seite 134 - THOU shalt have one God only; who Would be at the expense of two ? No graven images may be Worshipped, except the currency: Swear not at all; for, for thy curse Thine enemy is none the worse : At church on Sunday to attend Will serve to keep the world thy friend: Honour thy parents ; that is, all From whom advancement may befall; Thou shalt not kill; but need'st not strive Officiously to keep alive...
Seite 92 - The people they stare, and they ask who I am • And if I should chance to run over a cad, I can pay for the damage if ever so bad. So pleasant it is to have money, heigh ho ! So pleasant it is to have money.
Seite 138 - Yea, the rough rock, the dull earth, the wild sea's furying waters (Violent say'st thou and hard, mighty thou think'st to destroy), All with ineffable longing are waiting their Invader, All, with one varying voice, call to him, Come and subdue...
Seite 47 - Man, reject as sin ; The clouded hill attend thou still, And him that went within. He yet shall bring some worthy thing For waiting souls to see : Some sacred word that he hath heard Their light and life shall be ; Some lofty part, than which the heart Adopt no nobler can, Thou shalt receive, thou shalt believe, And thou shalt do, O Man ! Qui laborat, oral.
Seite 57 - THROUGH the great sinful streets of Naples as I past, With fiercer heat than flamed above my head My heart was hot within me; till at last My brain was lightened, when my tongue had said Christ is not risen ! Christ is not risen, no, He lies and moulders low; Christ is not risen.
