Page 55 - And has he left his birds and flowers; And must I call in vain? And through the long, long summer hours, Will he not come again? " And by the brook and in the glade Are all our wanderings o'er? Oh ! while my brother with me play'd, Would I had loved him more !
Page 54 - He would not hear thy voice, fair child — He may not come to thee ! The face that once like spring-time smiled On earth no more thou'lt see. A rose's brief bright life of joy, Such unto him was given ; Go, thou must play alone, my boy ! Thy brother is in heaven.
Page 52 - Close and closer then we knit Hearts and hands together, Where our fire-side comforts sit In the wildest weather ; Oh ! they wander wide, who roam, For the joys of life, from home. Nearer, dearer bands of love Draw our souls in union, To our Father's house above, To the saints' communion ; Thither every hope ascend, There may all our labors end.
Page 17 - God will surely ask, Ere I enter heaven, Have I done the task Which to me was given ? Little drops of rain Bring the springing flowers ; And I may attain Much by little powers.
Page 44 - A word, a look, has crushed to earth Full many a budding flower : Which, had a smile but owned its birth, Would bless life's darkest hour. Then deem it not an idle thing A pleasant word to speak ; The face you wear, the thoughts you bring, A heart may heal or break.
Page 53 - Oh call my brother back to me, I cannot play alone ; The summer comes with flower and bee, Where is my brother gone...
Page 29 - Thou canst guard thy creatures sleeping ; Heal the heart long broke with weeping. God of stillness and of motion, Of the desert and the ocean, Of the mountain, rock, and river, Blessed be thy name for ever.
Page 5 - Oh, be kind to each other, The night's coming on, When friend and when brother Perchance may be gone!
Page 44 - A LITTLE word in kindness spoken, A motion or a tear, Has often healed the heart that's broken, And made a friend sincere.
Page 14 - I will to-morrow, that I will, I will be sure to do it; To-morrow comes, to-morrow goes, And still thou art to do it. Thus still repentance is deferred. From one day to another: Until the day of death is come, And judgment is the other.
