We took sweet counsel together, And walked unto the house of God in company.
Page 311 - Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? And one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
Page 287 - Thy mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; And thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. Thy righteousness is like the great mountains ; Thy judgments are a great deep : O Lord, thou preservest man and beast.
Page 95 - And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamour and evil-speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be ye kind one to another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
