Page 319 - No man of iron mould and bloody hands, Who sought to wreak upon the cowering lands The passions that consumed his restless heart ; But one of tender spirit and delicate frame, Gentlest in mien and mind Of gentle womankind, Timidly shrinking from the breath of blame : One in whose eyes the smile of kindness made Its haunt, like flowers by sunny brooks in May, Yet, at the thought of others' pain, a shade Of sweeter sadness chased the smile away.
Page 34 - Better to stem with heart and hand The roaring tide of life, than lie. Unmindful, on its flowery strand, Of God's occasions drifting by ! Better with naked nerve to bear The needles of this goading air, Than, in the lap of sensual ease, forego The godlike power to do, the godlike aim to know.
Page 100 - Trust in the Lord, and do good ; So shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord ; And he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord : Trust also in him ; and he shall bring it to pass.
