Էջ 57 - Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
Էջ 87 - It is easier to suppress the first desire, than to satisfy all that follow it.
Էջ 222 - The evidence that there is a Being, all-powerful, wise, and good, by whom every thing exists ; and particularly, to obviate difficulties regarding the wisdom and goodness of the Deity ; and this, in the first place, from considerations independent of written revelation, and, in the second place, from the Revelation of the Lord Jesus ; and from the whole, to point out the inferences most necessary for and useful to mankind.
Էջ 104 - Happy the man, who sees a God employed In all the good and ill, that chequer life! Resolving all events, with their effects And manifold results, into the will And arbitration wise of the Supreme.
Էջ 326 - THERE is a land of pure delight, Where saints immortal reign, Infinite day excludes the night, And pleasures banish pain. 2 There everlasting spring abides, And never-withering flowers : Death, like a narrow sea, divides This heavenly land from ours.
Էջ 308 - Seek ye the Lord while he may be found : call ye upon him while he is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts ; and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Էջ 384 - Let not this weak, unknowing hand Presume thy bolts to throw. And 'deal damnation round the land. On each I judge thy foe.
Էջ 57 - Then Jonah prayed unto the Lord his God out of the fish's belly, and said, I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the Lord, and he heard me: out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice.
Էջ 103 - I have never forgotten it ; and while I recollect anything, I never shall. To me it was the voice of God ; and it has been a word in season throughout my life. I learned from it not to leave till tomorrow the work of to-day, or to idle when I ought to be working.
