Page 24 - How sweet the name of Jesus sounds In a believer's ear ! It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds, And drives away his fear.
Page 72 - These poor wretches were stunted in their growth, their hideous faces bedaubed with white paint, their skins filthy and greasy, their hair entangled, their voices discordant, and their gestures violent Viewing such men, one can hardly make oneself believe that they are fellow -creatures, and inhabitants of the same world.
Page 120 - Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, And warmeth them in the dust, And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, Or that the wild beast may break them. She is hardened against her young ones, As though they were not hers; Her labour is in vain without fear; Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, Neither hath he imparted to her understanding. What time she lifteth up herself on high, She scorneth the horse and his rider.

These heaps can be distinguished at a long distance by the bright green colour of certain plants which invariably grow on them The Fuegian wigwam resembles, in size and dimensions, a haycock.
Page 17 - Beneath Moriah's rocky side A gentle fountain springs Silent and soft its waters glide, Like the peace the Spirit brings The thirsty Arab stoops to drink Of the cool and quiet wave, And the thirsty spirit stops to think Of Him who came to save. Siloam is the fountain's name, It means " One sent from God;" And thus the holy Saviour's fame. It gently spreads abroad. O grant that I, like this sweet well, May Jesus' image bear, And spend my life, my all, to tell How full his mercies are.
