11. oldal - Here woman reigns ; the mother, daughter, wife, Strews with fresh flowers the narrow way of life; In the clear heaven of her delightful eye, An angel-guard of loves and graces lie ; Around her knees domestic duties meet, And fireside pleasures gambol at her feet. " Where shall that land, that spot of earth be found...
36. oldal - BIDE with me! fast falls the eventide, -^ The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide ; When other helpers fail, and comforts flee, Help of the helpless, oh abide with me. 2 Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day; Earth's joys grow dim, its glories pass away; Change and decay on all around I see; 0 Thou who changest not, abide with me.
36. oldal - I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless ; Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness ; Where is death's sting ? Where, grave, thy victory ? I triumph still, if Thou abide with me. Hold Thou Thy Cross before my closing eyes ; Shine through the gloom, and point me to the skies; Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee; In life, in death, O LORD, abide with me.
45. oldal - Like flakes of snow that fall unperceived upon the earth," says Jeremy Bentham, " the seemingly unimportant events of life succeed one another.

68. oldal - Restraining prayer, we cease to fight ; Prayer makes the Christian's armour bright ; And Satan trembles when he sees The weakest saint upon his knees.
39. oldal - He that is down needs fear no fall, He that is low, no pride; He that is humble, ever shall Have God to be his guide. I am content with what I have, Little be it or much: And, Lord, contentment still I crave, Because thou savest such. Fulness to such a burden is That go on pilgrimage; Here little, and hereafter bliss, Is best from age to age.
17. oldal - A glance of heaven to see, To none on earth is given ; And yet a happy family Is but an earlier heaven.
29. oldal - There is none In all this cold and hollow world, no fount Of deep, strong, deathless love, save that within A mother's heart.
14. oldal - You have weathered many a storm in your passage, mother ; but now God is dealing very graciously with you, by causing the winds to cease, and by giving you a calm at the end of your voyage." " God has always dealt graciously with me, my son ; but this last expression of his kindness, in permitting me to see you before I die, is so unexpected, that it is like a miracle wrought in answer to prayer.
