Page 561 - For my soul is full of troubles : and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.
Page 561 - Shall thy lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or thy faithfulness in destruction? Shall thy wonders be known in the dark? and thy righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?
Page 130 - This blood my veins is clotting in, My years are many — they were few When first I entered at the U— — niversity of Gottingen — — niversity of Gottingen.
