Seite 208 - I thank Thee more that all our joy Is touched with pain ; That shadows fall on brightest hours, That thorns remain ; So that earth's bliss may be our guide, And not our chain.

And judge none lost ; but wait and see, With hopeful pity, not disdain ; The depth of the abyss may be The measure of the height of pain And love and glory that may raise This soul to God in after days !

Seite 143 - mid the trees, That stood below the stream. At eve they all assembled, All care and doubt were fled ; With jovial laugh they feasted, The board was nobly spread, The elder of the village Rose up, his glass in hand, And cried, " We drink the downfall " Of an accursed land ! " The night is growing darker, " Ere one more day is flown, " Bregenz, our foemen's stronghold
Seite 144 - Nothing she heard around her, though shouts rang forth again ; Gone were the green Swiss valleys, the pasture, and the plain ; Before her eyes one vision, and in her heart one cry, That said, " Go forth, save Bregenz, and then, if need be, die!
Seite 99 - Present shall fulfil them, What he promised, she shall do. She inherits all his treasures, She is heir to all his fame; And the light that lightens round her Is the lustre of his name. She is wise with all his wisdom, Living on his grave she stands; On her brow she bears his laurels, And his harvest in her hands.
