Page xxvii - Far, far away, like bells at evening pealing, The voice of Jesus sounds o'er land and sea, And laden souls by thousands meekly stealing, Kind Shepherd, turn their weary steps to Thee.
Page xxvii - Onward we go, for still we hear them singing, " Come weary souls, for Jesus bids you come :" And through the dark, its echoes sweetly ringing, The music of the Gospel leads us home.
Page li - MISERERE mei Deus : secundum magnam misericordiam tuam. Et secundum multitudinem miserationum tuarum : dele iniquitatem meam. Amplius lava me ab iniquitate mea : et a peccato meo munda me.
Page xxx - Saviour ! bless us ere we go ; Thy word into our minds instil ; And make our lukewarm hearts to glow With lowly love and fervent will. Through life's long day...
Page v - But I have felt thee in my thoughts Fighting with sin for me ; And when my heart loves, God, I know The sweetness is from thee.
Page xii - Faith of our fathers! living still In spite of dungeon, fire and sword ; O how our hearts beat high with joy Whene'er we hear that glorious word ; Faith of our fathers ! holy faith ! We will be true to thee till death.
Page xxvii - Angels, sing on ! your faithful watches keeping; Sing us sweet fragments of the songs above ; Till morning's joy shall end the night of weeping, And life's long shadows break in cloudless love.
Page li - Averte faciem tuam a peccatis meis, et omnes iniquitates meas dele. Cor mundum crea in me, Deus; et spiritum rectum innova in visceribus meis.
