Seite 22 - ... in the contemplation of them. I spent most of my time In thinking of divine things, year after year; often walking alone in the woods, and solitary places, for meditation, soliloquy, and prayer, and converse with God; and it was always my manner, at such times, to sing forth my contemplations.

Seite 19 - ... From about that time, I began to have a new kind of apprehensions and ideas of Christ, and the work of redemption, and the glorious way of salvation by him. An inward, sweet sense of these things, at times, came into my heart ; and my soul was led away in pleasant views and contemplations of them. And my mind was greatly engaged to spend my time in reading and meditating on Christ, on the beauty and excellency of his person, and the lovely' way of salvation by free grace in him.
Seite 18 - Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory for ever and ever, Amen.
