الصفحة 190 - But by book, And thy book alone. Though I fail, I weep : Though I halt in pace, Yet I creep To the throne of grace. Then let wrath remove ; Love will do the deed : For with love Stony hearts will bleed. Love is swift of foot ; Love's a man of war, And can shoot, And can hit from far. Who can 'scape his bow ? That which wrought on thee, Brought thee low, Needs must work on me. Throw away thy rod ; Though man frailties hath, Thou art God : Throw away thy wrath.
الصفحة 176 - And now in age I bud again, After so many deaths I live and write; I once more smell the dew and rain, And relish versing: O my only light, It cannot be That I am he, On whom thy tempests fell all night.
الصفحة 195 - A servant with this clause Makes drudgery divine : Who sweeps a room, as for Thy laws, Makes that and th' action fine. This is the famous stone That turneth all to gold : For that which God doth touch and own Cannot for less be told.
الصفحة 189 - DISCIPLINE. THROW away thy rod. Throw away thy wrath 0 my God, Take the gentle path. For my heart's desire Unto thine is bent : I aspire To a full consent. Not a word or look I affect to own, But by book, And thy book alone. Though I fail, I weep : Though I halt in pace, Yet I creep To the throne of grace.
الصفحة 29 - Judge not the preacher; for he is thy judge. If thou mislike him, thou conceiv'st him not. God calleth preaching, folly. Do not grudge To pick out treasures from an earthen pot. The worst speak something good. If all want sense, God takes a text, and preacheth patience.
الصفحة 115 - Beauty in thee takes up her place, And dates her letters from thy face, When she doth write. A fine aspect in fit array, Neither too mean, nor yet too gay, Shows who is best : Outlandish looks may not compare ; For all they either painted are, Or else undrest.
الصفحة 45 - I straight return'd, and, knowing his great birth, Sought him accordingly in great resorts ; In cities, theatres, gardens, parks, and courts : At length I heard a ragged noise and mirth Of theeves and murderers : there I him espied, "Who straight Your suit is granted, said, and died.
الصفحة xviii - ... Sir, I pray deliver this little book to my dear brother Ferrar, and tell him he shall find in it a picture of the many spiritual conflicts that have passed betwixt God and my soul, before I could subject mine to the will of Jesus my Master ; in whose service I have now found perfect freedom : desire him to read it ; and then, if he can think it may turn to the advantage of any dejected poor soul, let it be made public : if not, let him burn it ; for I and it are less than the least of God's mercies.
الصفحة 80 - And did enclose this light for His ; That, as each beast his manger knows, Man might not of his fodder miss : Christ hath took in this piece of ground, And made a garden there, for those Who want herbs for their wound. The rest of our Creation Our great Redeemer did remove With the same shake, which at His passion Did th...
الصفحة 99 - Farewell, dear flowers ; sweetly your time ye spent, Fit, while ye lived, for smell or ornament, And after death for cures. I follow straight, without complaints or grief ; Since, if my scent be good, I care not if It be as short as yours.
