Página 26 - 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. All men are stretched on their quiet beds ; and the child sleeps upon the breast of its mother. Darkness is spread over the skies, and darkness is upon the ground ; every eye is shut, and every hand is still.
Página 5 - 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.
Página 97 - I have seen a man in the pride of his strength; his cheeks glowed with beauty; his limbs were full of activity; he leaped; he walked; he ran; he rejoiced in that he was more excellent than those— I returned, he lay stiff and cold on the bare ground; his feet could no longer move, nor his hands stretch...
Página 24 - THE glorious sun is set in the west; the night dews fall ; and the air, which was sultry, becomes cool. The flowers fold up their coloured leaves; they fold themselves up, and hang their heads on the slender stalk. The chickens are gathered under the wing of the hen, and are at rest; the hen herself is at rest also. The little birds have ceased their warbling, they are asleep on the boughs, each one with his head behind his wing. There is no murmur of bees around the hive, or among the honeyed woodbines...
Página 94 - CHILD of mortality, whence comest thou? why is thy countenance sad, and why are thine eyes red with weeping? I have seen the rose in its beauty; it spread its leaves to the morning sun — I returned, it was dying...
Página 18 - COME, and I will show you what is beautiful. It is a rose fully blown. See how she sits upon her mossy stem, like the queen of all the flowers! her leaves glow like fire : the air is filled with her sweet odour! she is the delight of every eye.
Página 27 - There is an eye that never slccpeth ; there is an eye that seeth in the dark night, as well as in the bright sunshine. When there is no light of the sun, nor of the moon ; when there is no lamp in the house, nor any little star twinkling through the thick clouds ; that eye seeth everywhere, in all places, and watcheth continually over all the families of the earth.
Página 27 - When there is no light of the sun, nor of the moon; when there is no lamp in the house, nor any little star twinkling through the thick clouds; that eye seeth everywhere, in all places, and watcheth continually over all the families of the earth. The eye that sleepeth not is God's; His hand is always stretched out over us.
Página 40 - ... whisper ; when we breathe out words, softly, with a low voice. He that filleth the heavens is here also. May we, that are so young, speak to Him that always was ? May we, that can hardly speak plain, speak to God ? We, that are so young, are but lately made alive ; therefore, we should not forget His forming hand, who hath made us alive. We, that cannot speak plain, should lisp out praises to Him who teacheth us how to speak, and hath opened our dumb lips. When we could not think of Him, He thought...
Página 11 - BEHOLD the shepherd of the flock, he taketh care for his sheep, he leadeth them among clear brooks, he guideth them to fresh pasture : if 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...
