Seite 75 - The reverend champion stood. At his control, Despair and anguish fled the struggling soul ; Comfort came down the trembling wretch to raise, And his last faltering accents whispered praise.
Seite 126 - T^EAR no more the heat o' the sun -*- Nor the furious winter's rages; Thou thy worldly task hast done, Home art gone, and ta'en thy wages : Golden lads and girls all must, As chimney-sweepers, come to dust. Fear no more the frown o...

Seite 80 - I have seen the walls of Balclutha, but they were desolate. The fire had resounded in the halls : and the voice of the people is heard no more. The stream of Clutha was removed from its place by the fall of the walls. The thistle shook, there, its lonely head : the moss whistled to the wind.
Seite 75 - Or why so long (in life if long can be) Lent Heaven a parent to the poor and me ? What makes all physical or moral ill?
Seite 110 - Never to do that thing upon which you. dare not first ask the blessing of God upon the success thereof. Sir, I have made bold with your name in my will for an executor; and I hope you will not take it ill.
