Page 64 - Calvary's mournful mountain climb, There, adoring at His feet, Mark that miracle of time, God's own Sacrifice complete. " It is finished !" hear Him cry; Learn of Jesus Christ to die.
Page 64 - GO to dark Gethsemane, Ye that feel the tempter's power, Your Redeemer's conflict see, Watch with him one bitter hour ; Turn not from his griefs away, Learn of Jesus Christ to pray. 2 Follow to the judgment-hall; View the Lord of life arraigned...
Page xix - Contemplative piety, or the intercourse between God and the human soul, cannot be poetical. Man admitted to implore the mercy of his Creator and plead the merits of his Redeemer is already in a higher state than poetry can confer.
Page 66 - Prayer is the burden of a sigh, The falling of a tear, The upward glancing of an eye, When none but God is near.
