Star of eternity ! the only star By which the bark of man could navigate The sea of life, and gain the coast of bliss Securely...
Стр. 111 - They set as sets the morning star, which goes Not down behind the darkened west, nor hides Obscured among the tempests of the sky. But melts away into the light of heaven.

Стр. 64 - Because she found no nourishment abroad. The blue heavens withered, and the moon, and sun, And all the stars, and the green earth, and morn And evening, withered ; and the eyes, and smiles, And faces, of all men and women withered ; Withered to him; and all the universe, Like something which had been, appeared; but now Was dead and mouldering fast away.
