Side 27 - Where then shall Hope and Fear their objects find? Must dull suspense corrupt the stagnant mind? Must helpless man, in ignorance sedate, Roll darkling down the torrent of his fate?
Side 27 - Implore His aid, in His decisions rest, Secure, whate'er He gives, He gives the best. Yet, when the sense of sacred presence fires, And strong devotion to the skies aspires, Pour forth thy fervours for a healthful mind, Obedient passions, and a will resign'd ; For love, which scarce collective man can fill ; For patience, sovereign o'er transmuted ill ; For faith, that, panting for a happier seat, Counts death kind Nature's signal of retreat.
Side 341 - All Nature is but Art, unknown to thee; All Chance, Direction, which thou canst not see; All Discord, Harmony not understood; All partial Evil, universal Good : And, in spite of Pride, in erring Reason's spite, One truth is clear, Whatever is, is right.

Side 39 - Yield to the serpent and the woman ? or, Yielding, why suffer ? What was there in this ? The tree was planted, and why not for him ? If not, why place him near it, where it grew, The fairest in the centre ? They have but One answer to all questions, " 'Twas His will, And He is good.
Side 228 - Oh, thou beautiful And unimaginable ether ! and Ye multiplying masses of increased And still increasing lights ! what are ye ? what Is this blue wilderness of interminable Air, where ye roll along, as I have seen The leaves along the limpid streams of Eden ? Is your course measured for ye ? Or do ye Sweep on in your unbonnded revelry Through an aerial universe of endless Expansion — at which my soul aches to think — Intoxicated with eternity?
Side 27 - Still raise for good the supplicating voice, But leave to Heaven the measure and the choice. Safe in his power whose eyes discern afar The secret ambush of a specious prayer ; Implore his aid, in his decisions rest, Secure whate'er he gives, he gives the best.
