With cheerful heart I close mine eyes, Since thou wilt not remove : And in the morning let me rise Rejoicing in thy love.

Page 75 - My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: For their feet run to evil, and make haste to shed blood.
Page 134 - Where I see the blind or lame, Deaf or dumb, I'll kindly treat them; I deserve to feel the same, If I mock, or hurt, or cheat them. If I meet with railing tongues. Why should I return them railing?
Page 72 - I pass'd, — and they were gone. Read, ye that run, the awful truth With which I charge my page ! A worm is in the bud of youth, And at the root of age.
