Page 58 - Live while you live, the Epicure would say, And seize the pleasures of the present day. Live while you live, the sacred Preacher cries, And give to God each moment as it flies.
Page 25 - For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at. any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
Page 392 - HEAR, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: For the Lord hath spoken, I have nourished and brought up children, And they have rebelled against me.
Page 45 - An universal synod of all sweets; By whom it is defined thus — That no perfume For ever shall presume To pass for odoriferous, But such alone whose sacred pedigree Can prove itself some kin, sweet name ! to thee. Sweet name, in thy each syllable A thousand blest Arabias dwell ; A thousand hills of frankincense ; Mountains of myrrh, and beds of spices, And ten thousand paradises, The soul, that tastes thee, takes from thence.

Page 214 - In law, what plea so tainted and corrupt, But, being season'd with a gracious voice, Obscures the show of evil? In religion, What damned error, but some sober brow Will bless it, and approve it with a text, Hiding the grossness with fair ornament?
Page 42 - And hardly do we guess aright at things that are upon earth, and with labour do we find the things that are before us: but the things that are in heaven who hath searched out?
Page 182 - DIM as the borrow'd beams of moon and stars To lonely, weary, wandering travellers, Is reason to the soul : and as on high Those rolling fires discover but the sky, Not light us here ; so Reason's glimmering ray Was lent, not to assure our doubtful way, But guide us upward to a better day. And as those nightly tapers disappear When day's bright lord ascends our hemisphere ; So pale grows Reason at Religion's sight ; So dies, and so dissolves in supernatural light.
