Strana 2 - Thine eye my bed and path surveys, My public haunts and private ways; Thou know'st what 'tis my lips would vent. My yet unutter'd words
Strana 34 - And went with Meekness, Charity, and Love. Where'er a tear was dried, a wounded heart Bound up, a bruised spirit with the dew Of sympathy anointed, or a pang Of honest suffering soothed, or injury Repeated oft, as oft by love forgiven ; Where'er an evil passion was...
