Стр. 100 - round the prophets of to-day ? From the tombs of the old prophets steal the funeral lamps away They must upward still, and onward, who would keep abreast of Truth ; New occasions teach new duties ; Time makes ancient good uncouth; Lo, before us gleam her camp-fires ! we ourselves must Pilgrims be,
Стр. 58 - Thanks for the heavenly message brought by thee, Child of the wandering sea, Cast from her lap, forlorn! From thy dead lips a clearer note is born Than ever Triton blew from wreathed horn ! Through the deep caves of thought I hear a voice that sings :— While on mine ear it rings,
Стр. 150 - NEARER HOME Nearer my Father's house, Where the many mansions be; Nearer the great white throne, Nearer the crystal sea; Nearer the bound of life, Where we lay our burdens down; Nearer leaving the cross, Nearer gaining the crown ! But lying darkly between, Is the silent, unknown stream, That leads at last to the light.
Стр. 57 - is the ship of pearl, which, poets feign, 1 Sails the unshadowed main,— The venturous bark that flings On the sweet summer wind its purpled wings In gulfs enchanted, where the Siren sings, And coral reefs lie bare, Where the cold sea-maids rise to sun their streaming hair. Its webs of living gauze no more unfurl; Wrecked is the ship of pearl!
Стр. 77 - WHEN I AWAKE I AM STILL WITH THEE. STILL, still with Thee, when purple morning breaketh, When the bird waketh and the shadows flee; Fairer than morning, lovelier than the daylight, Dawns the sweet consciousness, / am with Thee.'

Стр. 97 - decide, In the strife of Truth with Falsehood, for the good or the right, And the choice goes by for ever 'twixt that darkness the bloom or blight, Parts the goats upon the left hand, and the sheep
Стр. 39 - While life's dark maze I tread, And griefs around me spread, Be Thou my guide ; Bid darkness turn to day, Wipe sorrow's tears away, Nor let me ever stray From Thee aside. When ends life's transient dream, When death's cold, sullen stream Shall o'er me roll; Blest Saviour, then, in love, Fear and distrust remove, O bear me safe above— A ransomed soul.
Стр. 219 - The little sandpiper and I. Comrade, where wilt thou be to-night, When the loosed storm breaks furiously ? My driftwood fire will burn so bright! To what warm shelter canst thou fly? I do not fear for thee, though wroth The tempest rushes through the sky: For are we not God's children both, Thou, little sandpiper, and I.
Стр. 178 - We passed the setting sun. We paused before a house that seemed A swelling of the ground ; The roof was scarcely visible, The cornice but a mound. Since then 'tis centuries, but each Feels shorter than the day I first surmised the horses
Стр. 327 - DUTY I SLEPT, and dreamed that life was Beauty; I woke, and found that life was Duty. Was thy dream then a shadowy lie ? Toil on, sad heart, courageously, And thou shalt find thy dream to be A noonday light and truth to thee.
