Strana 24 - Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; not slothful in business ; fervent in spirit ; serving the Lord ; rejoicing in hope ; patient in tribulation ; continuing instant in prayer; distributing to the necessity of saints ; given to hospitality.
Strana 13 - Father's will, Such love, and meekness so divine, I would transcribe and make them mine. 3 Cold mountains and the midnight air Witnessed the fervor of Thy prayer ; The desert Thy temptations knew, Thy conflict and Thy victory too. 4 Be Thou my pattern ; make me bear More of Thy gracious image here ; Then God, the Judge, shall own my name Among the followers of the Lamb.
Strana 109 - BLEST be the tie that binds Our hearts in Christian love ; The fellowship of kindred minds Is like to that above. 2 Before our Father's throne We pour our ardent prayers ; Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one, Our comforts and our cares.

Strana 159 - Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.
Strana 60 - God, which should come between her and him, though it should be like plucking out a right eye or cutting off" a right hand ? Must she not now choose between God and man, between religion and love ? She must. I mean not to say that this was sound reasoning ; but I apprehend that it requires no deep insight into human nature, to be made aware that in many individuals, religion is a much stronger passion than love, and...
Strana 157 - They know, indeed, at what hour they may beat the door of an acquaintance, how many steps they must attend him towards the gate, and what interval should pass before his visit is returned ; but seldom extend their care beyond the exterior and unessential parts of civility, nor refuse their own vanity any gratification, however expensive to the quiet of another.
