Seite 110 - Ye lust and have not : ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain : ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. 3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
Seite 152 - Fought against frowns with smiles ; gave glorious chase To persecutions ; and against the face Of death and fiercest dangers durst, with brave And sober pace, march on to meet a grave ! On their bold breasts about the world they bore thee, And to the teeth of hell stood up to teach thee ; In centre of their inmost souls they wore thee, Where racks and torments strived in vain to reach thee.
Seite 122 - Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay : but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
Seite 145 - Evil into the mind of God or man May come and go, so unapproved, and leave No spot or blame behind...
Seite 86 - ... inconsolable tears ; and, whether in triumphant or defeated lands, a shudder of orphanage and widowhood — a chill of woe and death — runs far and wide through the world. The meek moon breaks the dissipating veil of the conflict, and rolls its calm splendor above the dead. And see now how much woe man has mingled with the inevitable evils of the universe ! See now the fierceness of his passion, the folly of his wickedness, witnessed by the torn standards, the broken wheels, the pools of clotted...

ALL evil, in fact the very existence of evil, is inexplicable until we refer to the paternity of God. It hangs a huge blot in the universe until the orb of divine love rises behind it. In that apposition...
Seite 40 - Profaneness is a low, grovelling vice. He who indulges it is no gentleman. I care not what his stamp may be in society, — I care not what clothes he wears, or what culture he boasts — despite all his refinement, the light and habitual taking of God's name in vain betrays a coarse nature and a brutal will.
Seite 148 - Their temptations and hers, different in form, are the same in substance. They, like her, are tempted to doubt that God is, and that He is the Author of good, and not -of evil ; and that He is mightier than the evil ; and that He can and will overthrow it, and deliver the universe out of it. This is the real temptation, there is no other. All events, all things and persons, are bringing this temptation before us ; no man is out of the reach of it who is in God's world ; no man is intended to be out...
Seite 58 - The great doctrine of human brotherhood, of the worth of a man, that he is not to be trod upon as a footstool or dashed in pieces as a worthless vessel, and the doctrines of popular liberty, education, and reform — all these have become active and every-day truths under the influence of Christianity.
Seite 41 - That holy name of God ! Have you ever pondered its meaning' ? Have you ever thought what it is that you mingle thus with your passion and your wit' ? It is the name of Him whom the angels worship, whom the heaven of heavens can not contain ! 5.
