Sivu viii - Flames in the forehead of the morning sky. So Lycidas sunk low, but mounted high, Through the dear might of Him that walk'd the waves ; Where, other groves and other streams along, With nectar pure his oozy locks he laves, And hears the unexpressive nuptial song, In the blest kingdoms meek of joy and love. There entertain him all the saints above, In solemn troops and sweet societies, That sing, and, singing, in their glory move, And wipe the tears for ever from his eyes.

Sivu 112 - When the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the Lord will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them. I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.
Sivu 123 - So let thy pardoning love be found. 3 O wash my soul from every sin, And make my guilty conscience clean ; Here on my heart the burden lies, And past offences pain mine eyes. 4 My lips with shame my sins confess Against thy law, against thy grace ; Lord, should thy judgment grow severe, I am condemned, but thou art clear. 5 Should sudden vengeance seize my breath, I must pronounce thee just, in death ; And if my soul were sent to hell, Thy righteous law approves it well.
Sivu 109 - I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me; and the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Sivu 54 - not like an anchorite who keeps his cell, but like one of those unholy hermits who wander about the world to see and hear wonders," and some such sense of depreciation is usually given to the phrase.
Sivu 28 - ... go before a magistrate to make their affidavit, there will be but little additional trouble in satisfying the requisition of the law in both particulars; which had therefore better be done. I have the honor to remain, sir, with great respect, your obedient servant, To the SECRETARY OF THE NAVY.
Sivu 113 - ... agency in relation to all great objects, may aggravate the impression, often so insufficient, of the absolute supremacy of God, of the total dependence of all mortal strength and effort on him, and of the necessity of maintaining habitually a devout respect to his intervention. It might promote that last attainment of a zealously good man, the resignation to be as diminutive and as imperfectly successful an agent as God pleases. I...
Sivu 61 - They talked of a distinguished living writer [Macaulay?^ ; of his style, Mr Wordsworth remarked, that every sentence seemed finished by itself, which was never the case with our best writers — that reviewing had an injurious effect on the style of a literary man, the reviewer has ever to be saying something that will tell, every sentence must be striking.. . .One other remark he made must not be forgotten; speaking of a writer whom he considered not a safe guide on account of his prejudices, he...
Sivu 100 - Israeli has happily touched on this frequent characteristic of the race of which he treats : — " One peculiar trait in the conversations of men of genius which has often injured them when the listeners were not intimately acquainted with the man, are certain sports of a vacant mind ; a sudden impulse to throw out opinions and take views of things in some humour of the moment.
