Page 221 - I'll seek by day some glade unknown, All light and silence like Thy throne, And the pale stars shall be, at night, The only eyes that watch my rite.
Page 222 - And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand ; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances. And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously ; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.
