Halaman 31 - Could I be cast where Thou art not, That were indeed a dreadful lot ; But regions none remote I call, Secure of finding God in all.
Halaman 89 - I" LOVE my God, but with no love of mine, •*• For I have none to give ; I love thee, Lord, but all the love is thine, For by thy life I live ; I am as nothing, and rejoice to be Emptied, and lost, and swallow'd up in thee.
Halaman 30 - While place we seek, or place we shun, The soul finds happiness in none , But with a God to guide our way, Tis equal joy to go or stay.
Halaman 47 - Yield to the Lord, with simple heart, All that thou hast , and all thou art ; Renounce all strength but strength divine ; And peace shall be for ever thine : Behold the path which I have trod, My path, till I go home to God.
Halaman 40 - LOVE ! if Thy destined sacrifice am I, Come, slay thy victim, and prepare thy fires : Plunged in thy depths of mercy, let me die The death which every soul that lives desires ! I watch my hours, and see them fleet away ; The time is long that I have languished here ; Yet all my thoughts Thy purposes obey, With no reluctance, cheerful and sincere.
Halaman 30 - All scenes alike engaging prove To souls impressed with sacred Love ! Where'er they dwell, they dwell in Thee ; In heaven, in earth, or on the sea. To me remains nor place nor time ; My country is in every clime ; I can be calm and free...
Halaman 41 - tis equal, whether love ordain My life or death, appoint me pain or ease ; My soul perceives no real ill in pain ; In ease or health no real good she sees. One good she covets, and that good alone, To choose thy will, from selfish bias free ; And to prefer a cottage to a throne, And grief to comfort, if it pleases thee.
Halaman 74 - Adieu, ye vain delights of earth ! Insipid sports and childish mirth, I taste no sweets in you ; Unknown delights are in the Cross, All joy beside to me is dross, And Jesus thought so, too. The Cross ! oh, ravishment and bliss ! How grateful...
Halaman 38 - To take the impression of a will divine, Be that thy glory, and those riches thine. Confess him righteous in his just decrees, Love what he loves, and let his pleasure please ; Die daily ; from the touch of sin recede ; Then thou hast crowned him, and he reigns indeed.
Halaman 32 - No gloomy days arise from them. Ah then ! to His embrace repair ; My soul, thou art no stranger there ; There Love divine shall be thy guard, And peace and safety thy reward.
