Seite 341 - LORD Jesus, come ; for here Our path through wilds is laid ; We watch as for the dayspring near, Amid the breaking shade. 2 Lord Jesus, come ; for hosts Meet on the battle plain ; The patriot mourns, the tyrant boasts, And tears are shed like rain. 3 Lord Jesus, come ; for still Vice shouts her maniac mirth ; The famished crave in vain their fill, While teems the fruitful earth.
Seite 170 - ... affections till they are shed abroad in all their plenitude, the purposes of their creation become fulfilled. They were to life like a sleeping ocean to a bright but barren and silent shore. When the breeze from afar awakened it, new lights began to gleam, and echoes to be heard; rich and unthought-of treasures were cast up from the depths; the barriers of individuality were broken down; and from henceforth, they who choose may "hear the mighty waters rolling evermore.
Seite 346 - Day thoughts feed nightly dreams ; And sorrow tracketh wrong, As echo follows song. On, on, for ever. " By night, like stars on high, The hours reveal their train ; They whisper and go by ; I never watch in vain. Moves one, move all; Hark to the foot-fall ! On, on, for ever.
