Side 275 - Leave thy fatherless children, I will preserve them alive; and let thy widows trust in me.
Side 16 - If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.
Side 353 - I at times feel toward heaven ; but a few years would not be missed from my eternity of bliss, and I can well afford to spare them, both for your sake, and for the sake of the poor Burmans. I am not tired of my work, neither am I tired of the world ; yet, when Christ calls me home, I shall go with the gladness of a boy bounding away from his school. Perhaps I feel something like the young bride, when she contemplates resigning the pleasant associations of her childhood, for a yet dearer home —...
Side 362 - Twere pleasant, that in flowery June, When brooks send up a cheerful tune, And groves a joyous sound, The sexton's hand, my grave to make, The rich, green mountain-turf should break.
Side 93 - No hymn of praise expressed the exultant feelings of joyous hearts. Stillness and solemnity pervaded the scene. We felt, on the banks of the water, as a little, feeble, solitary band. But perhaps some hovering angels took note of the event with more interest than they witnessed the late coronation ; perhaps Jesus looked down on us, pitied and forgave our weaknesses, and marked us for his own ; perhaps, if we deny him not, he will acknowledge us, another day, more publicly than we venture at present...

The spotted man instantly seized Mr. Judson, threw him on the floor, and produced the small cord, the instrument of torture. I caught hold of his arm ; ' Stay, (said I,) I will give you money.' ' Take her too,' said the officer,
Side 129 - as in water face answereth to face, so doth the heart of man to man.
Side 99 - Some natural tears we dropped, but wiped them soon. The world was all before us, where to choose Our place of rest, and Providence our guide.
Side 21 - Should Fate command me to the farthest verge Of the green earth, to distant barbarous climes, Rivers unknown to song ; where first the sun Gilds Indian mountains, or his setting beam Flames on the Atlantic isles, 'tis nought to me; Since God is ever present, ever felt, In the void waste as in the city full ; And where He vital breathes, there must be joy.
Side 353 - death will never take me by surprise — do not be afraid of that — I feel so strong in Christ. He has not led me so tenderly thus far, to forsake me at the very gate of heaven. No, no ; I am willing to live a few years longer, if it should be so ordered, and if otherwise, I am willing and glad to die now. I leave myself entirely in the hands of God, to be disposed of according to his holy will.
