Page 172 - Lord is a Sun and Shield : He will give Grace and Glory, and no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
Page 152 - To Good and Evil equal bent, I'm both a Devil and a Saint.
Page 179 - My faith, that sees so darkly here, Will there resign to vision clear ; My hope, that's here a weary groan, Will to fruition yield the throne. Here fetters hamper freedom's wing, But there the captive is a king ; And grace is like a buried seed, But sinners there are saints indeed.
Page 192 - Our Lord is ours, and we are his ; Yea, now we see him as he is ; And hence we like unto him are, And full his glorious image share. " No darkness now, no dismal night, No vapour intercepts the light ; We see for ever face to face, The highest Prince in highsst place. " This, this, does heav'n enough afford, We are for ever with the Lord; We want no more, for all is giv'n; His presence is the heart of heav'n.
Page 178 - But there, all griefs are swallow'd up. Love here is scarce a faint desire ; But there, the spark's a flaming fire ; , Joys here are drops, that passing flee ; But there, an overflowing sea.
Page 265 - Paraphrase or Large Explicatory Poem upon the Song of Solomon, Wherein the mutual love of Christ and His Church Contained in that Old Testament Song is imitated in the language of the New Testament, and adapted to the Gospel- dispensation.
