Page 498 - Blessed are ye when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
Page 617 - Earth proudly wears the Parthenon As the best gem upon her zone ; And Morning opes with haste her lids To gaze upon the Pyramids ; O'er England's Abbeys bends the sky As on its friends with kindred eye ; For, out of Thought's interior sphere These wonders rose to upper air, And nature gladly gave them place, Adopted them into her race, And granted them an equal date With Andes and with Ararat.

Ye Sun-born Virgins ! on the road of truth. Then we could still enjoy, then neither thought Nor outward things were...
Page 573 - Thames does flow, And mark in every face I meet Marks of weakness, marks of woe.
