Strana 92 - The Te Deum We praise thee, O God; we acknowledge thee to be the Lord. All the earth doth worship thee, the Father everlasting. To thee all Angels cry aloud; the Heavens, and all the Powers therein; To thee Cherubim and Seraphim...
Strana 75 - I was not ever thus, nor prayed that thou shouldst lead me on; I loved to choose and see my path; but now lead thou me on. I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears, pride ruled my will: remember not past years. So long thy power hath...

Strana 136 - Here and there ia a stark, dead tree. A narrow footpath winds among the crags. The path turns a sharp corner between boulders ; and the fair contrast of a sunny country smiles beyond it. Rose-bushes in full bloom peer above the top of the rocks. The annunciation lily is still prominent among the flowers. No sign of life appears in the mountainous foreground.

Strana 141 - THORNE (still lying with closed eyes ; murmurs, but more distinctly). I said I would die two deaths for him. . . . Are they over, yet ? ... if that would help him any . . . where he had gone. (Opens her eyes, but they see nothing. Dreamily and solemnly, as. if repeating a familiar prayer, she speaks softly).
