Стр. 56 - See, what a grace was seated on this brow; Hyperion's curls; the front of Jove himself; An eye like Mars, to threaten and command; A station like the herald Mercury, New-lighted on a heaven-kissing hill; A combination, and a form, indeed, Where every god did seem to set his seal, To give the world assurance of a man : This was your husband.
Стр. 56 - O, speak again, bright angel ! for thou art As glorious to this night, being o'er my head, As is a winged messenger of heaven Unto the white-upturned wond'ring eyes Of mortals, that fall back to gaze on him, When he bestrides the lazy pacing clouds, And sails upon the bosom of the air.

Стр. 179 - Where shall he rest his wing ? where turn for flight ? For all around is Light, — Primal, essential, all-pervading Light ! Heart cannot think, nor tongue declare, Nor eyes of Angel bear, That Glory unimaginably bright; The Sun himself had seemed A speck of darkness there, Amid that Light of Light ! 13.
Стр. 234 - Be glad, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your God. He has crowned the year with goodness ; He has glorified the earth with deliverance ; if ye should ' rejoice in the Lord alway,' above all should ye do so now. Only take heed that ye rejoice aright; that Christmas drown not the name of Christ; that in the joy of the Saviour's Birth ye neglect...
Стр. 306 - You see me, Lord Bassanio, where I stand, Such as I am: though for myself alone I would not be ambitious in my wish, To wish myself much better; yet for you I would be trebled twenty times myself...
Стр. 236 - ... obedience; bringing heart, and soul, and strength, and intellect, as offerings to the Bridegroom's Table. Children of the Earth, wild olives of the Gentiles, listen to the Song of Christmas. Yes ! there are hearts that love Him, and find their joy in His favour. Who are they that wake the Nativity Morn with the loudest and sweetest carols ? that fill the Lord's Courts with beaming faces, and bring the brightest smile, and the happiest laugh, for the meeting of affection at home ?
