Page 230 - And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit ! and they cried out for fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer ! it is I ! be not afraid.
Page 315 - Nor thro' the questions men may try, The petty cobwebs we have spun: If e'er when faith had fall'n asleep, I heard a voice, 'Believe no more' And heard an ever-breaking shore That tumbled in the Godless deep; A warmth within the breast would melt The freezing reason's colder part, And like a man...

Page 230 - And he said. Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
Page 316 - That friend of mine who lives in God, That God, which ever lives and loves, One God, one law, one element, And one far-off divine event, To which the whole creation moves.
