Halaman 143 - twas a famous victory. My father lived at Blenheim then, Yon little stream hard by, They burnt his dwelling to the ground, And he was forced to fly ; So with his wife and child he fled, Nor had he where to rest his head.

Halaman 142 - She saw her brother Peterkin Roll something large and round Which he beside the rivulet In playing there had found; He came to ask what he had found That was so large and smooth and round.

Halaman 160 - To still my sorrows, own thy power, Thy goodness love, thy justice fear! If in this bosom aught but Thee Encroaching sought a boundless sway, Omniscience could the danger see, And Mercy look the cause away. Then, why, my soul, dost thou complain ?

Halaman 78 - O Thou by whom we come to God, The Life, the Truth, the Way, The path of prayer Thyself hast trod ;
Halaman 111 - And men stood breathless in their dread, And baffled in their skill ; But One was there, who rose and said To the wild sea— Be still!
Halaman 78 - Prayer is the burden of a sigh ; The falling of a tear, The upward glancing of an eye, When none but God is near.
