Each chair is filled — we're all at home ; To-night let no cold stranger come ; It is not often thus around Our old familiar hearth we're found. Bless, then, the meeting and the spot; For once be every care forgot; Let gentle Peace assert her power, And kind Affection rule the hour; We're all — all here.
Seite 134 - The indorsement of supreme delight, Writ by a Friend, and with His blood ; The couch of time, care's balm and bay : The week were dark, but for thy light ; Thy torch doth show the way.

The other days and thou Make up one man; whose face thou art, Knocking at heaven with thy brow: The worky days are the back-part; The burden of the week lies there, Making the whole to stoop and bow, Till thy release appear.
Seite 246 - Save and deliver us, we humbly beseech thee, from the hands of our enemies, abate their pride, assuage their malice, and confound their devices ; that we, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore from all perils, to glorify thee, who art the only giver of all victory ; through the merits of thy only Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
