第 156 頁 - Shall I be left forgotten in the dust, When Fate, relenting, lets the flower revive ? Shall Nature's voice, to man alone unjust, Bid him, though doom'd to perish, hope to live ? Is it for this fair Virtue oft must strive With disappointment, penury, and pain ? No : Heaven's immortal Spring shall yet arrive, And man's majestic beauty bloom again, Bright through th' eternal year of Love's triumphant reign.
第 208 頁 - AS, panting in the sultry beam, "^ The hart desires the cooling stream, So to thy presence, Lord, I flee, So longs my soul, O God, for thee , Athirst to taste thy living grace, And see thy glory, face to face. 2 But rising griefs distress my soul, And tears on tears successive roll ; For many an evil voice is near, To chide my woe, and mock my fear ; And silent memory weeps alone O'er hours of peace and gladness flown.
第 200 頁 - Oil ! weak to know a Saviour's power, To feel a Father's care ; A moment's toil, a passing shower, Is all the grief ye share. 4...
第 238 頁 - Je consens qu'une femme ait des clartés de tout : Mais je ne lui veux point la passion choquante De se rendre savante afin d'être savante; Et j'aime que souvent, aux questions qu'on fait, Elle sache ignorer les choses qu'elle sait : De son étude enfin je veux qu'elle se cache, Et qu'elle ait du savoir sans vouloir qu'on le sache...
第 203 頁 - Thy praise transported Nature sung In pealing chorus loud and far ; The echoing vault with rapture rung, And shouted every morning star. When, bending from His native sky, The Lord of Life in mercy came, And laid His bright effulgence by, To bear on earth a human name...
第 209 頁 - Should vexing thoughts distract thy breast ? Turn, turn to him, in every pain, Whom never suppliant sought in vain; Thy strength, in joy's ecstatic day, Thy hope, when joy has pass'd away. 453 "£''' not your heart be troubled; in my Father's [CM house are many mansions: I go to prepare a place for you...
第 317 頁 - Of Exchange. The relative abundance and scarcity of specie in different countries forms what is called the course of exchange. Exchange is a fixing of the actual and momentary value of money.
第 204 頁 - Whose guilt, whose fears, whose triumph tell How deep the wounds his Saviour bore ? Long as yon glittering arch shall bend, Long as yon orbs in glory roll, Long as the streams of life descend To cheer with hope the fainting soul, Thy praise shall fill each grateful voice, Shall bid the song of rapture sound : And heaven's exulting sons rejoice To bear the full Hosanna round.
第 201 頁 - Then, Christian, dry the falling tear, The faithless doubt remove ; Redeem'd at last from guilt and fear, Oh ! wake thy heart to love. A Saviour's blood hath bought thy peace, Thy Saviour God adore ; He bade the throb of terror cease, The pains of guilt He bore.
第 222 頁 - By pride deceived, by pride undone, Willing captive, yet be free, Take my yoke, and learn of me ; I of heaven and earth the Lord, God with God, the eternal Word ; I forsook my father's side, Toiled and wept, and bled and died.
