Página 278 - Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

Página 177 - There are smiles and tears in that gathering band, Where the heart is pledged with the trembling hand. What trying thoughts in her bosom swell, As the bride bids parents and home farewell ! Kneel down by the side of the tearful fair, And strengthen the perilous hour with prayer.
Página 288 - It is not what my hand? have done That weighs my spirit down, That casts a shadow o'er the sun, And over earth a frown It is not any heinous guilt, Or vice by men abhorred ; For fair the fame that I have built, A fair life's just reward, — And men would wonder if they knew ITow sad I feel, with sins so few.
Página 185 - Awake, my soul, And meditate the wonder! Countless suns Blaze round thee, leading forth their countless worlds! Worlds — in whose bosoms living things rejoice, And drink the bliss of being from the fount Of all-pervading Love.
