Стр. 188 - BEDFORD*. This morning, timely rapt with holy fire, I thought to form unto my zealous Muse, What kind of creature I could most desire To honour, serve, and love, as Poets use. I meant to make her fair, and free, and wise, Of greatest blood, and yet more good than great ; I meant the day-star should not brighter rise, Nor lend like influence from his lucent seat. I meant she should be courteous, facile, sweet, Hating that solemn vice of greatness, pride ; I meant each softest virtue there should meet,...
Стр. 187 - There was a great engine at the lower end of the room, which had motion, and in it we're the images of sea-horses, (with other terrible fishes,) which were ridden by the Moors. The indecorum was, that there was all fish and no water.

Стр. 188 - Nor lend like influence from his lucent seat.

Only a learned, and a manly soul I purposed her ; that should, with even powers, The rock, the spindle, and the sheers control Of Destiny, and spin her own free hours. Such when I meant to feign, and wished to see, My Muse bade, BEDFORD write, and that was she ! LXXVII.
Стр. 187 - LUCY, COUNTESS OF BEDFORD*. This morning, timely rapt with holy fire, I thought to form unto my zealous Muse, What kind of creature I could most desire To honour, serve, and love, as Poets use. I meant to make her fair, and free, and wise, Of greatest blood, and yet more good than great ; I meant the day-star should not brighter rise, Nor lend like influence from his lucent seat.
Стр. 592 - Life of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ ; Being a correct and general history of our Glorious Redeemer, from his birth to his ascension into heaven ; with the lives of the Holy Apostles and Evangelists. By the REV. JOHN...
Стр. 502 - God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life." " Herein is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
Стр. 551 - Come unto me, all ye that are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest !" He smiled and wept when he spoke these words.
Стр. 156 - With the saints' and angels' quire. " 0 my soul, of heavenly birth, Do thou scorn this basest earth ; Place not here thy joy and mirth, Where of bliss is greatest dearth. " From below thy mind remove, And affect the things above ; Set thy heart, and fix thy love, Where thou truest joys shalt prove.
