Page 109 - As the hart panteth after the water-brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God : when shall I come and appear before God...
Page 248 - I was in trouble. 13 I will offer unto thee fat burnt-sacrifices, with the incense of rams : I will offer bullocks and goats. 14 O come hither, and hearken, all ye that fear God : and I will tell you what he hath done for my soul.
Page 82 - He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: He also will hear their cry, and will save them.
Page 53 - Its lucid leaves unfolds: for him the hand Of autumn tinges, every fertile branch With blooming gold and blushes like the morn. Each passing hour sheds tribute from her wings; And still new beauties meet his lonely walk, And loves unfelt attract him.

Many fine families have been spoiled, and many ruined, by the separate exercise of those two principles.
Page 252 - ... as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold we live; as chastened, and not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, yet possessing all things.
Page 9 - So shall my walk be close with God, Calm and serene my frame; So purer light shall mark the road That leads me to the Lamb.
Page iii - Were a proper line of conduct pursued in the education of children, how few profligate sons and daughters, and how few broken-hearted parents, should we find ! The neglect of early religious education, connected with a wholesome and affectionate restraint, is the ruin of millions. Many parents, to excuse their indolence, and most criminal neglect, say, " We cannot give our children grace.
