الصفحة 26 - For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away : but the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.
الصفحة 108 - I remember no other example, fitted though it has here shewn itself for bringing out some of the noblest powers of the Latin language — the solemn effect of the triple rhyme, which has been likened to blow following blow of the hammer on the anvil — the confidence of the poet in the universal interest of his theme, a confidence which has made him set out his matter with so majestic and unadorned a plainness, as at once to be intelligible to all, — these merits, with many more, have combined...
الصفحة 77 - VICTIMAE Paschali laudes immolent Christiani. Agnus redemit oves : Christus innocens Patri reconciliavit peccatores. Mors et vita, duello conflixere mirando : dux vitae mortuus, regnat vivus. Die nobis, Maria, quid vidisti in via?
الصفحة vi - THE measure is English heroic verse without rime, as that of Homer in Greek, and of Virgil in Latin, — rime being no necessary adjunct or true ornament of poem or good verse, in longer works especially, but the invention of a barbarous age, to set off wretched matter and lame metre...
الصفحة 53 - Was he not at the table when he said so? He was at that time alive, and suffered not till the next day. What took he but bread ? What brake he but bread ? Look, what he took he brake, and look, what he brake he gave, and look, what he gave they did eat; and yet, all this time he himself was alive, and at supper before his disciples, or else they were deceived.
الصفحة 76 - At first the rhymes were often merely vowel or assonant ones, the consonants not being required to agree ; or the rhyme was adhered to, when this was convenient, but disregarded when the needful word was not readily at hand ; or the stress of the rhyme was suffered to fall on an unaccented syllable, thus scarcely striking the ear ; or it was limited to the similar termination of a single letter ; while sometimes on the strength of this like ending, as sufficiently sustaining the melody, the whole...
الصفحة 84 - ... orationem, coelesti quadam dulcedine fuisse perfusum interius, qua, Spiritu Sancto auctore, tantam eructavit verbis adeo succinctis suavitatem. Some later writers have attributed this hymn, and, on grounds as slight, the Stabat Mater, to Pope Innocent the Third ; so the...
الصفحة 65 - Weeping stood His mother, sighing By the cross where Jesus, dying, Hung aloft on Calvary ; Through her soul, in sorrow moaning, Bowed in grief, in spirit groaning, Pierced the sword in misery. Filled with grief beyond all others, Mother — blessed among mothers — Of the God-begotten one ! How she sorroweth and grieveth, Trembling as she thus perceiveth Dying her unspotted one...
الصفحة 53 - ... remembrance how that for my sins the body of Christ was broken, and his blood shed on the cross ; and with that bread and wine I receive the benefits that come by the breaking of his body, and shedding of his blood, for our sins on the cross. Fecknam. Why, doth not Christ speak these words, " Take, eat, this is my body ? " Require you any plainer words ? Doth he not say, it is his body?
الصفحة 27 - Tell where is Salomon, that once so noble was ? Or where now Samson is, in strength whom none could pass ? Or worthy Jonathas, that prince so lovely bold ? Or fair Absalom, so goodly to behold ? Shew whither is Caesar gone, that conquered far and near?
