Page 234 - ... Tara's walls, As if that soul were fled. — So sleeps the pride of former days, So glory's thrill is o'er, And hearts, that once beat high for praise, Now feel that pulse no more. No more to chiefs and ladies bright The harp of Tara swells; The chord alone, that breaks at night, Its tale of ruin tells. Thus Freedom now so seldom wakes, The only throb she gives, Is when some heart indignant breaks, To show that still she lives.
Page 263 - Almighty espy me! May God the Almighty hear me! May God give me eloquent speech! May the arm of God protect me! May the wisdom of God direct me! May God give me power to teach and to preach!
Page 263 - From lying soothsayers' incantations, From the gloomy laws of the Gentile nations, From Heresy's hateful innovations, From Idolatry's rites and invocations. Be those my defenders, My guards against every ban...
Page 262 - TO-DAY I put and I place The virtue that dwells in the Seraphim's love, And the virtue and grace That are in the obedience And unshaken allegiance Of all the Archangels and angels above, And in the hope of the Resurrection To everlasting reward and election, And in the prayers of the Fathers of old, And in the truths the Prophets foretold, And in the Apostles...
Page 263 - Tarah to-day, in this fateful hour, I place all heaven with its power, And the sun with its brightness, And the snow with its whiteness, And fire with all the strength it hath. And lightning with its rapid wrath, And the winds with their swiftness along their path, And the sea with its deepness, And the rocks with their steepness, And the earth with its starkness, — All these I place, By God's almighty help and grace. Between myself and the powers of darkness.
Page 264 - Christ, the lowly and meek. Christ the All-Powerful be In the heart of each to whom -I speak, In the mouth of each who speaks to me! In all who draw near me. Or see me or hear me ! At Tarah to-day, in this awful hour, I call on the Holy Trinity!
Page 237 - Forget not our wounded companions, who stood In the day of distress by our side; While the moss of the valley grew red with their blood, They stirred not, but conquered and died!
Page 70 - And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
Page 304 - Shannon to its breast ! The language of old Erin, of her history and name — Of her monarchs and her heroes, of...
Page 262 - At Tarah to-day, in this awful hour, I call on the Holy Trinity! Glory to Him who reigneth in power, The God of the elements, Father and Son And Paraclete Spirit, which Three are the One, The ever-existing Divinity! Salvation dwells with the Lord, With Christ, the omnipotent Word. From generation to generation Grant us, O Lord, thy grace and salvation...
