Unfortunately this book appears to have been scanned very carelessly: most of the right-hand pages are truncated on the right, obliterating much of the text. However, it is not just the odd-numbered pages that suffer: page 62 in particular, was obviously crumpled as it was scanned. A disappointment.

A trusting heart, a yearning eye, Can win their way above ; If mountains can be moved by faith, Is there less power in love...

Page 56 - Thou, true Life of all that live, Who dost, unmoved, all motion sway, Who dost the morn and evening give, And through its changes guide the day ; Thy light upon our evening...
