Page 68 - From all that dwell below the skies, Let the Creator's praise arise ; Let the Redeemer's name be sung, Through every land, by every tongue. 2. Eternal are thy mercies, Lord ; Eternal truth attends thy word : Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore, Till suns shall rise and set no more.
Page 43 - Were half the power, that fills the world with terror, Were half the wealth, bestowed on camps and courts, P Given to redeem the human mind from error, There were no need of arsenals nor forts : The warrior's name would be a name abhorred ! And every nation, that should lift again Its hand against a brother, on its forehead Would wear forevermore the curse of Cain...
Page 43 - Down the dark future, through long generations, The echoing sounds grow fainter and then cease; And like a bell, with solemn, sweet vibrations, I hear once more the voice of Christ say, "Peace !"

His ready word a testimony bore, Ennobling e'er th« apron that he wore ; And when he died, amid a nation's gloom, His mourning Brethren bore him to the tomb...
Page 17 - What has drawn us thus apart, From the common daily round, Bringing here a lowly heart, Standing as on holy ground? Not the scorn of humble things, — Simplest tasks that love can find ; Not the pride of thought that brings Laggard will and restless mind. Nay ; but here upon the height, Rapt from idle cares away, Fain our souls would see a light, Herald of the coming day : Morning visions high and pure, Glorious things that are to be, Faith and...
Page 66 - He will judge among the nations, and rebuke many peoples; and they shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pruninghooks : nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
