第 107 頁 - Bewilder'd in the vale; in all unlike! His full reverse in all! What higher praise? What stronger demonstration of the right? The present, all their care; the future, his. When public welfare calls, or private want, They give to fame; his bounty he conceals. Their virtues varnish nature; his, exalt.
第 136 頁 - Heaven gives us friends to bless the present scene; Resumes them, to prepare us for the next. All evils natural are moral goods ; All discipline, indulgence, on the whole. None are unhappy : all have cause to smile, But such as to themselves that cause deny.
第 150 頁 - Streams to a point, and centres in my sight ! Nor tarries there ; I feel it at my heart. My heart, at once, it humbles and exalts ; Lays it in dust, and calls it to the skies. Who sees it unexalted, or...

第 139 頁 - For all I bless thee ; most, for the severe ; * Her death— my own at hand — the fiery gulf, That flaming bound of wrath omnipotent ! It thunders ; — but it thunders to preserve ; It strengthens what it strikes ; its wholesome dread Averts the dreaded pain ; its hideous groans Join heav'n's sweet hallelujahs in thy praise, Great Source of good alone !
