Seite 36 - Father of light and life, thou Good Supreme ! O teach me what is good ; teach me Thyself! Save me from folly, vanity, and vice, From every low pursuit; and feed my soul With knowledge, conscious peace, and virtue pure; Sacred, substantial, never-fading bliss...
Seite 40 - THE stately Homes of England, How beautiful they stand! Amidst their tall ancestral trees, O'er all the pleasant land. The deer across their greensward bound, Through shade and sunny gleam, And the swan glides past them with the sound Of some rejoicing stream.
Seite 66 - She smil'd — and I could not but love ; She is faithless — and I am undone. Perhaps I was void of all thought : Perhaps it was plain to foresee, That a nymph so complete would be sought, By a swain more engaging than me.

Be bravely revenged : slight it, and the work's begun ; forgive it, and 'tis finished : he is below himself that is not above an injury.
Seite 57 - To name thee thus had been to speak thy name, And waken, o'er thy cheek, the blush of modest shame.
Seite 64 - While conscience, like a faithful friend, Shall through the gloomy vale attend, And cheer our dying breath — Shall, when all other comforts cease, Like a kind angel whisper peace, And smooth the bed of death.
Seite 56 - It is the mind, that maketh good or ill, That maketh wretch or happy, rich or poor : For some, that hath abundance at his will, Hath not enough, but wants in greatest store ; And other, that hath little, asks no more...
