Page 22 - ... she rejoiceth daily in its growth. But who is the Parent of the mother? who nourisheth her with good things, and watcheth over her with tender love, and remembereth her every moment? Whose arms are about her to guard her from harm? and if she is sick, who shall heal her?
Page 34 - The sheep rest upon their soft fleeces, and their loud bleating is no more heard amongst the hills. There is no sound of a number of voices, or of children at play, or the trampling of busy feet, and of people hurrying to and fro. The smith's hammer is not heard upon the anvil, nor the harsh saw of the carpenter.
Page 12 - Come, let us go forth into the fields, let us see how the flowers spring, let us listen to the warbling of the birds, and sport ourselves upon the new grass. The winter is over and gone, the buds come out upon the trees, the crimson blossoms of the peach and the nectarine are seen, and the green leaves sprout. The hedges are bordered with tufts of primroses, and yellow cowslips that hang down their heads; and the blue violet lies hid beneath the shade.
Page 101 - When our parents and friends die, and are laid in the cold ground, we see them here no more; but there we shall embrace them again, and live with them and be separated no more. There we shall meet all good men, whom we read of in holy books. There we shall see Abraham, the called of God...
Page 30 - The sun is glorious, but He that made the sun is more glorious than he. The eye beholdeth Him not, for His brightness is more dazzling than we could bear. He seeth in all dark places; by night as well as by day; and the light of His countenance is over all His works.
Page 25 - He biddeth us die, we die; His dominion is over all worlds, and the light of His countenance is upon all His works. God is our Shepherd, therefore we will follow Him; God is our Father, therefore we will love Him; God is our King, therefore we will obey Him.
Page 93 - He descends on a fiery cloud ; the sound of a trumpet goes before him ; thousands of angels are on his right hand. — It is Jesus, the Son of God ; the saviour of men ; the friend of the good. He comes in the glory of his Father ; he has received power from on high.
Page 88 - ... themselves out ; his life was departed from him ; and the breath out of his nostrils. Therefore do I weep, because DEATH is in the world; the spoiler is among the works of God; all that is made must be destroyed ; all that is born must die : let me alone, for I will weep yet longer.
Page 85 - A stately tree grew on the plain ; its branches were covered with verdure ; its boughs spread wide, and made a goodly shadow ; the trunk was like a strong pillar ; the roots were like crooked fangs.
Page 20 - ... the young lambs are weary, he carrieth them in his arms; if they wander, he bringeth them back. But who is the shepherd's Shepherd? who taketh care for him? who guideth him in the path he should go? and, if he wander, who shall bring him back? God is the shepherd's Shepherd. He is the Shepherd over all; He taketh care for all; the whole earth is His fold; we are all His flock; and every herb, and every green field, is the pasture which He hath prepared for us.
