Page 270 - OUR Lord Jesus Christ, who hath left power to his church to absolve all sinners who truly repent and believe in him, of his great mercy forgive thee thine offences ! And by his authority committed to me, I absolve thee from all thy sins, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
Page 97 - There runs not a drop of my blood in the veins of any living creature. This called on me for revenge. I have sought it: I have killed many: I have fully glutted my vengeance: for my country I rejoice at the beams of peace. But do not harbour a thought that mine is the joy of fear.

Page 439 - CHRIST, Whose glory fills the skies, Christ, the true, the only Light, Sun of Righteousness, arise, Triumph o'er the shades of night : Day-spring from on high, be near ; Day-star, in my heart appear. 2 Dark and cheerless is the morn Unaccompanied by Thee ; Joyless is the day's return Till Thy mercy's beams I see — Till they inward light impart, Glad my eyes and warm my heart.
Page 446 - Hast Thou a lamb in all thy flock I would disdain to feed ? Hast Thou a foe before whose face I fear thy cause to plead? 5 Would not my heart pour forth its blood In honour of thy name ? And challenge the cold hand of death To damp the immortal flame ? 6 Thou know'st I love Thee, dearest Lord ; But O ! I long to soar Far from the sphere of mortal joys, And learn to love Thee more.
