Page 54 - These are thy glorious works, Parent of good, Almighty, thine this universal frame, Thus wondrous fair; thyself how wondrous then ! Unspeakable, who sitt'st above these heavens, To us invisible, or dimly seen In these thy lowest works; yet these declare Thy goodness beyond thought, and power divine.
Page 102 - Trees, and flowers, and streams, Are social and benevolent ; and he Who oft communeth in their language pure, Roaming among them at the cool of day, Shall find, like him who Eden's garden dressed, His Maker there, to teach his listening heart.
Page 42 - O'er all the pools in our forest-dells ; Stilly and lightly their vases rest On the quivering sleep of the water's breast, Catching the sunshine thro' leaves that throw To their scented bosoms an emerald glow ; And a star from the depth of each pearly cup, A golden star unto heaven looks up, As if seeking its kindred where bright they lie, Set -in the blue of the summer sky.
