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 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.
