Page 501 - Thanksgiving to the Lord of life! to Him all praises be. Who from the hands of evil men hath set his handmaid free; All praise to Him before whose power the mighty are afraid, Who takes the crafty in the snare which for the poor is laid!
Page 346 - Beatus, quera elegisti, et assumpsisti : inhabitabit in atriis tuis. Replebimur in bonis domus tuae : sanctum est templum tuum, mirabile in aequitate. Exaudi nos, Deus salutaris noster : spes omnium finium terrae, et in mari, longe.
Page 98 - But when he came the second time, He came in power and love ; Softer than gale at morning prime Hovered his holy Dove. 3 The fires that rushed on Sinai down In sudden torrents dread, Now gently light, a glorious crown, On every sainted head.
Page 187 - French preferment ; taking a coule in one country, a crozier in another, and a grave in a third; neither bred where born, nor beneficed where bred, nor buried where beneficed ; but wandering in several kingdoms.
Page 365 - Bay, including North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Among the Shawanese Indians, who some years ago emigrated from Florida, and are now settled in Ohio, there is preserved a tradition which seems of importance here ; viz. that Florida was once inhabited by white people, who were in possession of iron implements.

The thick-veiled clouds by shedding many a tear, Like penitents, grew purified and bright, And, bravely struggling through earth's atmosphere, Passed to the regions of eternal light.
Page 223 - ... hedges to part ech mans ground from other ; and the ground seemeth to be nothing else within but rockes and stones : Yet it is very fruitfull and plentifull of grasse, and graine, as may appeare by the abundance of kine and cattel there : insomuch that we had good muttons (though somewhat lesse then ours in England) for two shillings or five groates a piece, good pigges and hennes for 3. pence a piece. The greatest want is industrious, painefull, and husbandly inhabitants to till and trimme the...
Page 398 - The Teach Cormac, lying to the south-east of the Forradh, with which it is joined by a common parapet, may be described as a double enclosure, the rings of which upon the western side become connected. Its diameter is about 140 feet.
Page 364 - And so it was, from isle to isle we passed, Like wanton bees or boys on flowers or lips ; And when that all was tasted, then at last We thirsted still for draughts instead of sips. I learned from this there is no Southern land Can fill with love the hearts of Northern men. Sick minds need change ; but, when in health they stand 'Neath foreign skies, their love flies home again.
