Strana 452 - So live, that when thy summons comes to join The innumerable caravan, that moves To that mysterious realm, where each shall take His chamber in the silent halls of death, Thou go not, like the quarry slave at night, Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave, Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.
Strana 105 - They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword. They wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; of whom the world was not worthy. They wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
Strana 456 - Being defamed, we entreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the off-scouring of all things unto this day.
Strana 398 - Hang their tufts of crimson berries Over stone walls gray with mosses, Pause by some neglected graveyard, For a while to muse, and ponder On a half-effaced inscription, Written with little skill of song-craft, Homely phrases, but each letter Full of hope, and yet of heart-break, Full of all the tender pathos Of the Here and the Hereafter;— Stay and read this rude inscription, Read this Song of Hiawatha!
Strana 487 - Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?
Strana 345 - His beard is abundant, the same colour as the hair, and forked. His eyes blue, and very brilliant. In reproving or censuring, He is awe-inspiring ; in exhorting and teaching, His speech is gentle and caressing. His countenance is marvellous in seriousness and grace. He has never once been seen to laugh ; but many have seen Him weep.
Strana 72 - Their sufferings at their execution were aggravated by insult and mockery, for some were disguised in the skins of wild beasts, and worried to death by dogs ; some were crucified ; and others were wrapped in pitched shirts, and set on fire when the day closed, that they might serve as lights to illuminate the night.
Strana 415 - The subjects of the sculptures and paintings place before us the exact ideas with which the first Christians were familiar ; they remind us, by what they do not contain, of the ideas with which the first Christians were not familiar.
Strana 323 - And yet not venturing rashly to draw near With their requests an angry Father's ear, Offer to her their prayers and their confession, And she for them in heaven makes intercession. And if our faith had given us nothing more Than this example of all womanhood, So mild, so merciful, so strong, so good, So patient, peaceful, loyal, loving, pure, This were enough to prove it higher and truer Than all the creeds the world had known before.
Strana 74 - I beseech you that you show not an unseasonable good will towards me. Suffer me to be food to the wild beasts, by whom I shall attain unto GOD. For I am the wheat of GOD, and I shall be ground by the teeth of the wild beasts, that I may be found the pure bread of Christ.
