Then shall, with universal dread, The sacred mystic book be read, To try the living and the dead.

O then ! what interest shall I make, To save my last important stake, When the most just have cause to quake...

But he answering said to one of them : Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst thou not agree with me for a penny? Take what is thine, and go thy way: I will also give to this last even as to thee. Or, is it not lawful for me to do what I will? Is thy eye evil, because I am good?
Page 96 - Lord who shall stand it ? For with thee there is merciful forgiveness : and by reason of thy law I have waited for thee, O Lord. My soul hath relied on his word ; my soul hath hoped in the Lord. From the morning watch even until night, let Israel hope in the Lord. Because with the Lord there is mercy, and with him plentiful redemption. And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
