viii. oldal - ... one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. Who knoweth the spirit of man that goeth upward, and the spirit of the beast that goeth downward to the earth?
187. oldal - The spacious firmament on high, With all the blue ethereal sky, And spangled Heavens, a shining frame, Their great Original proclaim. Th' unwearied sun from day to day Does his Creator's power display, And publishes to every land The work of an almighty hand. Soon as the evening shades prevail, The moon takes up the wondrous tale ; And nightly, to the...
8. oldal - Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.
12. oldal - A million torches, lighted by thy hand, Wander unwearied through the blue abyss : They own thy power, accomplish thy command, All gay with life, all eloquent with bliss. What shall we call them ? piles of crystal light, A glorious company of golden streams, Lamps of celestial ether burning bright — Suns, lighting systems with their joyous beams * But Thou to these art as the noon to night.
13. oldal - Thou art ! directing, guiding all, Thou art ! Direct my understanding then to Thee ; Control my spirit, guide my wandering heart Though but an atom midst immensity, Still I am something, fashioned by Thy hand ! I hold a middle rank 'twixt heaven and earth, On the last verge of mortal being stand, Close to the realms where angels have their birth, Just on the boundaries of the spirit-land...
135. oldal - The older I grow — and I now stand upon the brink of eternity — the more comes back to me the sentence in the Catechism which I learned when a child, and the fuller and deeper its meaning becomes, ' What is the chief end of man? — To glorify God, and enjoy Him for ever.
133. oldal - When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands ; thou hast put all things under his feet...
12. oldal - O THOU Eternal One ! whose presence bright All space doth occupy, all motion guide; Unchanged through time's all-devastating flight; Thou only God ! There is no God beside ! Being above all beings ! Mighty One ! Whom none can comprehend, and none explore; Who fill'st existence with Thyself alone : Embracing all, supporting, ruling o'er, Being whom we call God, and know no more...
187. oldal - Earth, Repeats the story of her birth : Whilst all the stars that round her burn, And all the planets, in their turn, Confirm the tidings as they roll, And spread the truth from pole to pole.
viii. oldal - For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity. All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.
