Page 216 - Thou art the path of that unresting sound, Dizzy ravine! — and when I gaze on thee I seem as in a trance sublime and strange...
Page 238 - I have pass'da miserable night, So full of fearful dreams, of ugly sights, That, as I am a Christian faithful man, I would not spend another such a night, Though 'twere to buy a world of happy days : So full of dismal terror was the time.
Page 339 - Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body.
