Pagina 112 - And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, So that I come again to my father's house in peace ; then shall the Lord be my God : and this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house : and of all that thou shalt give me, I will surely give the tenth unto thee.
Pagina 6 - Is it far away, in some region old, Where the rivers wander o'er sands of gold — Where the burning rays of the ruby shine, And the diamond lights up the secret mine, And the pearl gleams forth from the coral strand — Is it there, sweet mother, that better land ?

Pagina 65 - And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?

Pagina 62 - A rose's brief, bright life of joy, Such unto him was given ; Go — thou must play alone, my boy ! Thy brother is in heaven.
Pagina 52 - Priestman, you style this a dull conversation, and endeavour to divert my mind from dwelling upon death, but I entertain very different sentiments.

Pagina 49 - I wake ; Bright legions swarm unseen, and sing, unheard By mortal ear, the glorious Architect, In this his universal temple hung With lustres, with innumerable lights, That shed religion on the soul ; at once, The temple, and the preacher ! O how loud It calls devotion ! genuine growth of night ! Devotion ! daughter of astronomy ! An undevout astronomer is mad.
