Page 113 - O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker. For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.
Page 333 - When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
Page 222 - But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt.
Page 32 - Boast not thyself of to-morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
Page 13 - IN melancholic fancy, Out of myself, In the vulcan dancy, All the world surveying, Nowhere staying, Just like a fairy elf ; Out o'er the tops of highest mountains skipping, Out o'er the hills, the trees and valleys tripping, Out o'er the ocean seas, without an oar orshipping. Hallo, my fancy, whither wilt thou go ? Amidst the misty vapors, Fain would I know What doth cause the tapers ; Why the clouds benight us And affright us, While we travel here below.
Page 14 - Hallo, my fancy, hallo, Stay, stay at home with me, I can thee no longer follow, For thou hast betrayed me, And bewrayed me ; It is too much for thee. Stay, stay at home with me; leave off thy lofty soaring; Stay thou at home with me, and on thy books be poring; For he that goes abroad, lays little up in storing: Thou 'rt welcome home, my fancy, welcome home to me. ' Alas, poor scholar I Whither wilt thou go?
Page 14 - How the heavens are preserved, And this world served, In moisture, light, and heat ! If one spirit sits the outmost circle turning. Or one turns another continuing in journeying, If rapid circles* motion be that which they call burning!
Page 14 - Running madding; None doth his station hold. He that is below envieth him that riseth, And he that is above, him that 's below despiseth, So every man his plot and counter-plot deviseth.
Page 14 - Fain would I know the reason Why the little ant, All the summer season, Layeth up provision On condition To know no winter's want : And how housewives, that are so good and painful, Do unto their husbands prove so good and gainful; And why the lazy drones to them do prove disdainful.
Page 68 - Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of me, * * for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
