Page 25 - And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
Page 36 - He died that we might be forgiven, He died to make us good, That we might go at last to heaven, Saved by his precious blood.
Page 212 - And as the king passed by, he cried unto the king : and he said, Thy servant went out into the midst of the battle ; and, behold, a man turned aside, and brought a man unto me, and said, Keep this man : if by any means he be missing, then shall thy life be for his life, or else thou shalt pay a talent of silver. And as thy servant was busy here and there, he was gone.
Page 193 - YES! in the sea of life enisled, With echoing straits between us thrown, Dotting the shoreless watery wild, We mortal millions live alone. The islands feel the enclasping flow, And then their endless bounds they know. But when the moon their hollows lights, And they are swept by balms of spring, And in their glens, on starry nights, The nightingales divinely sing; And lovely notes, from shore to shore, Across the sounds and channels pour — Oh!

If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him. He trusted in God ; let him deliver him now, if he will have him 5 for he said ; I am the Son of God.
Page 31 - 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 152 - Where they smile in secret, looking over wasted lands, Blight and famine, plague and earthquake, roaring deeps and fiery sands, Clanging fights, and flaming towns, and sinking ships, and praying hands. But they smile, they find a music centred in a doleful song Steaming up, a lamentation and an ancient tale of wrong, Like a tale of little meaning tho...
Page 257 - JESUS, these eyes have never seen That radiant form of thine ; The veil of sense hangs dark between Thy blessed face and mine. 2 I see thee not, I hear thee not, Yet art thou oft with me ; And earth hath ne'er so dear a spot As where I meet with thee.
Page 7 - This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
