Page 63 - My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For, lo, the winter is past, The rain is over and gone ; The flowers appear on the earth ; The time of the singing of birds is come, And the voice of the turtle is heard in our land ; The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, And the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
Page 90 - Whether I die or live ; To love and serve Thee is my share, And this thy grace must give. If life be long, I will be glad, That I may long obey : If short — yet why should I be sad To soar to endless day ?

Page 27 - A double life is this of ours ; A two-fold form wherein we dwell ; And heaven itself is not so strange,] Nor half so far as teachers tell. With weary feet we daily tread The circle of a self-same round ; Yet the strong soul may not be held A prisoner in the petty bound. The body walketh as in sleep...
Page 139 - Other refuge have I none ; Hangs my helpless soul on thee ; Leave, ah 1 leave me not alone, Still support and comfort me. All my trust on thee is stayed, All my help from thee I bring ; Cover my defenceless head With the shadow of thy wing.
Page 61 - For my heart was hot and restless, And my life was full of care, And the burden laid upon me Seemed greater than I could bear. But now it has fallen from me, It is buried in the sea; And only the sorrow of others Throws its shadow over me.
