Page 199 - My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass : Because I will publish the name of the Lord: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.

Page 261 - twas so sweet to rest Upon thy gently guiding arm, thy sympathizing breast, 'Tis better here to be. No disappointments shroud The angel-bowers of joy, Our knowledge hath no cloud, Our pleasures no alloy, The fearful word to part Is never breathed above, Heaven hath no broken heart — Call me not hence, my love.
Page 256 - Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God : but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.
