" Then, in this same boat, beside, Sat two comrades old and tried ; One with all a father's truth, One with all the fire of youth.

Էջ 27 - A safe stronghold our God is still, A trusty shield and weapon; He'll help us clear from all the ill That hath us now o'ertaken. The ancient prince of hell Hath risen with purpose fell; Strong mail of craft and power He weareth in this hour— On earth is not his fellow. With force of arms we nothing can, Full soon were we down-ridden; But for us fights the proper Man, Whom God himself hath bidden.
Էջ 143 - Tramp! tramp! along the land they rode, Splash! splash! along the sea; The scourge is red, the spur drops blood, The flashing pebbles flee. " Hurrah ! hurrah ! well ride the dead ; The bride, the bride is come; And soon we reach the bridal bed, For, Helen, here's my home.
Էջ 240 - twas sterling! For of the wholly common is man made, And custom is his nurse! Woe then to them Who lay irreverent hands upon his old House furniture, the dear inheritance From his forefathers ! For time consecrates ; And what is gray with age becomes religion.
