Page 22 - Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
Page 115 - Lamb's high feast we sing Praise to our victorious King, Who hath washed us in the tide Flowing from His pierced side ; Praise we Him, Whose love divine Gives His sacred blood for wine, Gives His body for the feast, Christ the victim, Christ the priest.
