Стр. 37 - A rest for weary pilgrims found, " They softly lie, and sweetly sleep
Стр. 40 - A land of beauty, virtue, valor, truth, Time-tutored age and love-exalted youth: The wandering mariner, whose eye explores The wealthiest isles, the most enchanting shores, Views not a realm so bountiful and fair, Nor breathes the spirit of a purer air ; In every clime the...
Стр. 10 - My boast is not, that I deduce my birth From loins enthroned, and rulers of the Earth ; But higher far my proud pretensions rise — The son of parents passed into the skies.
Стр. 40 - An angel-guard of loves and graces lie ; Around her knees domestic duties meet, And fireside pleasures gambol at her feet. " Where shall that land, that spot of earth be found...
Стр. 53 - Once more upon the waters ! yet once more ! And the waves bound beneath me as a steed That knows his rider. Welcome to their roar! Swift be their guidance, wheresoe'er it lead ! Though the strain'd mast should quiver as a reed.

Night, silent, coo], transparent, crown'd the day ; The sky receded further into space, The stars came lower down to meet the eye, Till the whole hemisphere, alive with light, Twinkled from east to west by one consent. The constellations round the arctic pole, That never set to us, here scarcely rose, But...
Стр. 48 - Read on, I am glad to hear you. The words recall the feelings which first suggested them, and it is good for me to feel affected and humbled by the terms in which I have endeavoured to provide for the expression of similar religious experience in others. As all my hymns embody some portions of the history of the joys or sorrows, the hopes and fears of this poor heart, so I cannot doubt but that they will be found an acceptable vehicle of expression of the experience of many of my fellow-creatures...
Стр. 29 - I LEFT the God of truth and light, I left the God who gave me breath, To wander in the wilds of night, And perish in the snares of death. 2 Sweet was his service, and his yoke Was light and easy to be borne ; Through all his bonds of love I broke, I cast away his gifts with scorn.
