الصفحة 312 - I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth;" men, that can illustrate that power in their tempers and conduct, and in the whole uniform tenor of a renewed and sanctified life; to whom your Missionaries can point as proofs, that " whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report...
الصفحة 298 - WHENE'ER the clouds of sorrow roll, And trials whelm the mind, — When, faint with grief, thy wearied soul No joys on earth can find, — Then lift thy voice to God on high, Dry up the trembling tear, And hush the low complaining sigh : Fear not ; thy God is near. 2 When dark temptations spread their snares, And earth with charms allures, And when thy soul, oppressed with fears, The world's assault endures, Then let thy Father's friendly voice Thy fainting spirit cheer, And bid thy trembling heart...
الصفحة 158 - Vice, for vice is necessary to be shewn, should always disgust ; nor should the graces of gaiety, or the dignity of courage, be so united with it, as to reconcile it to the mind.

الصفحة 114 - THE FOUNTAIN OF LIVING WATERS. JEREMIAH ii. 13. BY THE REV. JOHN ALEXANDER. AROUND thy throne, in peaceful streams, 0 God ! celestial pleasure glides ; The brightened wave thine image beams, Untinged by sorrow's darkened tides. That stream my fainting spirit cheers, When sultry suns pour down their heat; And when I cross the vale of tears, It makes the cup of sorrow sweet. To Thee, the fountain-head, I rise, No joy below Thee sooths my mind ; My spring of bliss is in the skies, My heaven in Thee...
الصفحة 158 - ... and the dignity of courage ;" he has such perseverance, such address, and such liberality without profusion, that he becomes the object rather of our sympathy and admiration, than of our abhorrence. A French critic thus describes the effect produced on his own mind by this character. " By turns I could embrace and fight with Lovelace. His pride, his...
الصفحة 57 - Again, how welcome are the early signs, and precursory appearances of the spring; the earlier dawn of day; — a certain cheerful cast in the light, even though still shining over an expanse of desolation, — it has the appearance of a smile ; — a softer breathing of the air, at intervals ; — the bursting of the buds ; the vivacity of the animal tribes ; the first flowers of the season; — and by degrees, a delicate dubious tint of green. It needs not that a man should be a poet, or a sentimental...
الصفحة 193 - LIFT up thine eyes, afflicted soul ! From earth uplift thine eyes, Though dark the evening shadows roll, And daylight beauty dies ; One sun is set, — a thousand more Their rounds of glory run, Where science leads thee to explore In every star a sun. Thus when some long-loved comfort ends, And nature would despair, Faith to the heaven of heavens ascends...
