Page 12 - And wisdom at one entrance quite shut out. So much the rather thou, celestial Light, Shine inward, and the mind through all her powers Irradiate ; there plant eyes, all mist from thence Purge and disperse, that I may see and tell Of things invisible to mortal sight.
Page 61 - The trivial round, the common task, Will furnish all we ought to ask; Room to deny ourselves; a road To bring us daily nearer God.
Page 168 - Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine! Heir of salvation, purchase of God, Born of his Spirit, washed in his blood. This is my story, this is my song, Praising my Saviour all the day long.
Page 17 - The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If, therefore, the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

ST SENANUS AND THE LADY.
Page 26 - THOUGH troubles assail, And dangers affright, Though friends should all fail, And foes all unite: Yet one thing secures us, Whatever betide, The Scripture assures us The Lord will provide. 2 The birds without barn Or storehouse are fed, From them let us learn To trust for our bread: His saints what is fitting Shall ne'er be denied, So long as 'tis written, The Lord will provide.
Page 132 - SLEEP on, beloved, sleep, and take thy rest, Lay down thy head upon thy Saviour's breast...
Page 200 - Dear blind sister over the sea ! An English heart goes forth to thee. We are linked by a cable of faith and song, Flashing bright sympathy swift along; One in the East and one in the West, Singing for Him whom our souls love best,
