Strana 3 - Who has seen the wind ? Neither I nor you ; But when the leaves hang trembling The wind is passing through. Who has seen the wind ? Neither you nor I ; But when the trees bow down their heads The wind is passing by.
Strana 77 - In the bleak mid-winter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, ' Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak mid-winter Long ago. Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him Nor earth sustain; Heaven and earth shall flee away When He comes to reign: In the bleak mid-winter A stable-place sufficed The Lord God Almighty Jesus Christ.
Strana 73 - What can I give him, poor as I am? if I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb, if I were a wise man I would do my part; yet what I can I give him, give my heart.
Strana 22 - Boats sail on the rivers, And ships sail on the seas; But clouds that sail across the sky Are prettier far than these. There are bridges on the rivers, As pretty as you please; But the bow that bridges heaven And overtops the trees, And builds a road from earth to sky, Is prettier far than these.
Strana 78 - Worshipped the Beloved With a kiss. What can I give Him, Poor as I am? If I were a shepherd I would bring a lamb, If I were a Wise Man I would do my part, — Yet what I can I give Him, Give my heart.
Strana 29 - THE CITY MOUSE AND THE GARDEN MOUSE The city mouse lives in a house; The garden mouse lives in a bower, He's friendly with the frogs and toads, And sees the pretty plants in flower. The city mouse eats bread and cheese; The garden mouse eats what he can; We will not grudge him seeds and stocks, Poor little timid furry man. Christina...
Strana 62 - How many seconds in a minute? Sixty, and no more in it. How many minutes in an hour? Sixty for sun and shower. How many hours in a day ? Twenty-four for work and play. How many days in a week? Seven both to hear and speak. How many weeks in a month-? Four, as the swift moon runn'th. How many months in a year ? Twelve the almanac makes clear.
Strana 76 - BEFORE the paling of the stars, Before the winter morn, Before the earliest cock-crow Jesus Christ was born : Born in a stable Cradled in a manger, In the world His hands had made Born a stranger. Priest and King lay fast asleep In Jerusalem, Young and old lay fast asleep In crowded Bethlehem : Saint and Angel, ox and ass, Kept a watch together, Before the Christmas daybreak In the winter weather.
Strana 79 - The Shepherds had an Angel, The Wise Men had a star, But what have I, a little child, To guide me home from far, Where glad stars sing together And singing angels are? Lord Jesus is my guardian, So I can nothing lack. The lambs lie in His bosom, Along life's dangerous track, The wilful lambs that go astray, He bleeding bringeth back.
