Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.
Page 93 - Waft, waft, ye winds, his story, And you, ye waters, roll, Till, like a sea of glory, It spreads from pole to pole ; Till o'er our ransomed nature, The Lamb for sinners slain, Redeemer, King, Creator, In bliss returns to reign ! HEBEK.

Page 461 - Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God ? 6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ ; not by water only, but by water aud blood.
Page 93 - Waft, waft, ye winds, His story, And you,- ye waters, roll, Till like a sea of glory, It spreads from pole to pole; Till o'er our ransom'd nature, The Lamb for sinners slain, Redeemer, King, Creator, In bliss returns to reign.
Page 449 - ... that he was too much of a political prophet, and that the veneration which the heathen paid and still pay him, and which indeed almost regards him as a superior being, putting crowns and burning lights before his statue, was purchased by some unwarrantable compromise with their prejudices. I find I was quite mistaken. He was really one of the most active and fearless, as he was one of the most successful missionaries, who have appeared since the apostles.
