Page 33 - For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye therefore : for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
Page 46 - Come to the bridal chamber, Death! Come to the mother's when she feels For the first time her first-born's breath! Come when the blessed seals That close the pestilence are broke, And crowded cities wail its stroke! Come in consumption's ghastly form, The earthquake shock, the ocean storm! Come when the heart beats high and warm, With banquet-song, and dance, and wine!

Page 30 - Every year. Life is a count of losses, Every year; For the weak are heavier crosses, Every year; Lost springs with sobs replying, Unto Weary Autumn's sighing, While those we love are dying, Every year. The days have less of gladness, Every year; The nights more weight of sadness, Every year; Fair springs no longer charm us, The winds and weather harm us, The threats of death alarm us, Every year.
