Strana 90 - If to do were as easy as to know what were^ good to do, chapels had been churches, and poor men's cottages princes' palaces. It is a good divine that follows his own instructions: I can easier teach twenty what were good to be done, than be one of the twenty to follow mine own teaching.
Strana 23 - O LOVE Divine, that stooped to share Our sharpest pang, our bitterest tear, On Thee we cast each earth-born care, We smile at pain while Thou art near! Though long the weary way we tread, And sorrow crown each lingering year, No path we shun, no darkness dread, Our hearts still whispering, Thou art near!
Strana 1 - The object of the American Unitarian Association shall be to diffuse the knowledge and promote the interests of pure Christianity...
Strana 23 - Whither, midst falling dew, While glow the heavens with the last steps of day, Far, through their rosy depths, dost thou pursue Thy solitary way? Vainly the fowler's eye Might mark thy distant flight to do thee wrong, As, darkly painted on the crimson sky, Thy figure floats along.

Strana 24 - WILT thou not visit me? The plant beside me feels thy gentle dew ; Each blade of grass I see From thy deep earth its quickening moisture drew. Wilt thou not visit me ? Thy morning calls on me with cheering tone ; And every hill and tree Lend but one voice, the voice of thee alone. Come ! for I need thy love, More than the flower the dew, or grass the rain ; Come, like thy holy dove, And let me in thy sight rejoice to live again.
Strana 23 - HATH not thy heart within thee burned At evening's calm and holy hour, As if its inmost depths discerned The presence of a loftier power ? 2 Hast thou not heard 'mid forest glades, While ancient rivers murmured by, A voice from forth th...
Strana 24 - WAS the day when God's Anointed Died for us the death appointed, Bleeding on the dreadful cross; Day of darkness, day of terror, Deadly fruit of ancient error, Nature's fall, and Eden's loss...
