160 ページ - And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees' excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah. It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there. But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and Satyrs shall dance there. And the wild beasts of the islands...
95 ページ - My brethren have dealt deceitfully as a brook, And as the stream of brooks they pass away; Which are blackish by reason of the ice, And wherein the snow is hid: What time they wax warm, they vanish: When it is hot, they are consumed out of their place.

151 ページ - IN happy hour doth he receive The Laurel, meed of famous Bards of yore, Which Dryden and diviner Spenser wore, . . In happy hour, and well may he rejoice, Whose earliest task must be To raise the exultant hymn for victory...
166 ページ - WHO counsels peace at this momentous hour, When God hath given deliverance to the oppress'd, And to the injured power ? Who counsels peace, when Vengeance like a flood Rolls on, no longer now to be repress'd ; When innocent blood From the four corners of the world cries out For justice upon one accursed head ; When Freedom hath her holy...
212 ページ - I thank thee, I thank thee, Hodeirah's son ! I thank thee for doing what can't be undone, For binding thyself in the chain I have spun ! ' Then from his head she wrench'd A lock of his raven hair, And cast it in the fire, And cried aloud as it burnt, ' Sister ! Sister ! hear my voice ! 'Sister! Sister! come and rejoice! The thread is spun, The prize is won, The work is done, For I have made captive Hodeirah's Son.
