Seite 29 - Look grim as e'er he will, He harms us not a whit : For why ? His doom is writ, A word shall quickly slay him. God's Word, for all their craft and force, One moment will not linger, But spite of Hell, shall have its course, 'Tis written by his finger. And though they take our life, Goods, honour, children, wife, Yet is their profit small; These things shall vanish all, The City of God remaineth.
Seite 215 - The intelligible forms of ancient poets, The fair humanities of old religion, The power, the beauty, and the majesty, That had their haunts in dale or piny mountain, Or forest, by slow stream or pebbly spring, Or chasms, and watery depths ; all these have vanished ; They live no longer in the faith of reason...
Seite 43 - Earth trembled from her entrails, as again In pangs, and Nature gave a second groan; Sky loured, and, muttering thunder, some sad drops Wept at completing of the mortal Sin Original...
Seite 154 - And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory ; and he was eaten of worms, and gave up the ghost.

Seite 29 - With force of arms we nothing can, Full soon were we down-ridden; But for us fights the proper Man, Whom God himself hath bidden. Ask ye, who is this same? Christ Jesus is his name, The Lord Sabaoth's Son; He and no other one Shall conquer in the battle.
Seite 215 - Tis not merely The human being's Pride that peoples space With life and mystical predominance ; Since likewise for the stricken heart of Love This visible nature, and this common world, Is all too narrow ; yea, a deeper import Lurks in the legend told my infant years Than lies upon that truth, we live to learn.
Seite 163 - Charlotte, having seen his body Borne before her on a shutter, Like a well-conducted person, Went on cutting bread and butter.
Seite 248 - Many a year is in its grave, Since I crossed this restless wave; And the evening, fair as ever, Shines on ruin, rock, and river. Then, In this same boat, beside, Sat two comrades old and tried; One with all a father's truth, One with all the fire of youth. One on earth in silence wrought, And his grave in silence sought; But the younger, brighter form, Passed in battle and in storm...
Seite 144 - Tramp ! tramp ! along the land they rode, Splash ! splash ! along the sea ; The scourge is wight, the spur is bright, The flashing pebbles flee.
