الصفحة 135 - He is a path, if any be misled ; He is a robe, if any naked be ; If any chance to hunger, he is bread ; If any be a bondman, he is free ; If any be but weak, how strong is he !

الصفحة 164 - See, where the Author of all life is dying : O fearful day ! He dead, what hope of living ? See where the hopes of all our lives are buying : O cheerful day ! they bought, what fear of grieving?
