Pàgina 153 - But ah ! my inward spirit cries, Still bind me to thy sway ; Else the next cloud that veils the skies, Drives all these thoughts away.
Pàgina 254 - Bless the LORD, O my soul. PSALM 104 BLESS the LORD, 0 my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great ; Thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
Pàgina 233 - Mr Goodier here mentions his health, and gives a detail of his sufferings, which still continued uncommonly severe ; he continues, ' They do not hinder me, however, from walking out in the country a great deal. I rise soon after, and sometimes with the sun, generally about five o'clock ; the morning air is delicious, and I am very little within doors till about half-past eight. The middle of the day is in general too hot for walking, but after six I keep again moving till near eight ; this, however,...
Pàgina 242 - I shall always be safe ? and that if his wisdom sees good to remove me from this earthly scene, it is only to remove to another, where my enjoyments will be increased, and where my perceptions of his everlasting mercy will be more lively, my views of his glorious designs for the children of men more extensive and enchanting ? If I had had a doubt on this subject the wonderful interposition of His providence, in leading me, almost in spite of myself, to this house, would have removed it. There is...
Pàgina 236 - J'admets tout ce qu'elle dit, sans vouloir sur ce qui est obscur, expliquer temerairement le pour quoi, et le comment. Les choses cachees sont pour L'Eternel." So far as I have yet learnt, this language is applicable to the majority of Protestant ministers in France. Believing that secret things belong unto God, they seldom preach upon the mysteries of the Gospel, as they are termed.
Pàgina 103 - H. and Mrs. C. might live for ever ; and were it not that such a wish would be injurious to you, I should certainly utter it ; but when Christians like you 'can stand a tip toe on the mountain top of human life, look down with pleasure upon the valley they have passed, and sometimes stretch their wings in joyful hope of a happy flight into eternity," it were cruelty to bind them down to earth.
Pàgina 233 - ... mirror of the Creator's goodness, is a chorus of gratitude and praise. Nor is man silent in this chorus ; it is no rare thing to hear the labourers singing in the fields, and the country girls as they pass along the lanes with the knitting needle and the distaff, frequently express their gaiety by joining in the song. But the mildness of the climate, and beauty of the country, are not all the charms which my present situation possesses. Montauban is the seat of Protestant instruction in France...
Pàgina 255 - Who knoweth not in all these That the hand of the Lord hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind.
Pàgina 234 - ... little within doors till about half-past eight. The middle of the day is in general too hot for walking, but after six I keep again moving till near eight ; this, however, fatigues me. I sleep well, eat well, cough at present very little, and I trust Dr 's prescription will be of service to me. * * On the whole, my dear Mrs F., I think you will agree with me, in saying that 1 have every reason to rejoice in my visit to France. It has not only given me an opportunity of learning the language,...
Pàgina 152 - I was forced to submit, and yielded the more readily, because I was fully convinced the command was dictated by kindness, and, though it might be accompanied by apparent severity, was meant only for my good. Is not this a good illustration of the Divine dealings with his children ? Could we penetrate his counsels, and see the object of his apparently severe dispensations, as clearly as I could see the intention of Mrs C's conduct, should we not invariably find that this object was to train us to...
