Page 163 - Statesman, yet friend to truth ! of soul sincere, In action faithful, and in honour clear ; Who broke no promise, served no private end, Who gain'd no title, and who lost no friend ; Ennobled by himself, by all approved, And praised, unenvied, by the muse he loved,

Page 52 - For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
Page 55 - Mid pleasure, plenty, and success, Freely we take from Him who lends ; We boast the blessings we possess, Yet scarcely thank the One who sends. But let Affliction pour its smart, How soon we quail beneath the rod ! With shattered pride, and prostrate heart, We seek the long-forgotten God.
