Page 148 - IN the cross of Christ I glory, Towering o'er the wrecks of time ; All the light of sacred story Gathers round its head sublime.
Page 79 - And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, and stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment.

Page 160 - For Him shall prayer unceasing, And daily vows ascend, His kingdom still increasing A kingdom without end. The mountain dews shall nourish A seed in weakness sown, Whose fruit shall spread and flourish, And shake like Lebanon. O'er every foe victorious, He on his throne shall rest, From age to age more glorious, All blessing, and all blest : The tide of time shall never His -covenant remove ; His name shall stand for ever, That name to us is Love.
Page 126 - Remember thee, and all thy pains, And all thy love to me ; Yea, while a breath, a pulse remains, Will I remember thee.

Page 98 - In a small narrow cave, and begirt with cold clay, To the meanest of reptiles a peer and a prey. To BEAUTY ? Ah, no ! she forgets The charms which she wielded before ; Nor knows the foul worm that he frets The skin which but yesterday fools could adore For the smoothness it held, or the tint which it wore.
