Page 151 - I *AKE the dead CHRIST to my chamber •*• The CHRIST I brought from Rome ; Over all the tossing ocean, He has reached His Western home : Bear Him as in procession, And lay Him solemnly Where, through weary night and morning, He shall bear me company. The name I bear is other Than that I bore by birth ; And I've given life to children, Who'll grow and dwell on earth...

Page 37 - She rules the age by Beauty's power, As once she ruled by armed might ; The Southern sun doth treasure her Deep in his golden heart of light. Awe strikes the traveller when he sees The vision of her distant dome, And a strange spasm wrings his heart As the guide whispers :
Page 107 - Who hast the harmonies of every time ? 0 friend beloved ! I sit apart and dumb, — Sometimes in sorrow, oft in joy divine ; My lip will falter, but my prisoned heart Springs forth to measure its faint pulse with thine.

Thou should'st have had more faith ! the voice of Christ Called thee to meet him, walking on the wave; Thou should'st have trod the waters as a path, Such power divine thy holy mission gave. Shoreward thy recreant footsteps turn and sink; In vain the heavenly voice, the outstretched arm, Thou heed'st not, though a God doth beckon thee, Binding the billows with a golden charm. Where glory...

It seemed to...
