And over St. Abb's Head and the German Ocean, just then, bursts the first gleam of the level sun upon us, and I heard Nol say, in the words of the Psalmist, " Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered...
Side 87 - But here, — above, around, below. On mountain or in glen, Nor tree, nor shrub, nor plant, nor flower. Nor aught of vegetative power, The weary eye may ken.
Side xvi - This that Knox did for his Nation, I say, we may really call a resurrection as from death. It was not a smooth business ; but it was welcome surely, and cheap at that price, had it been far rougher.
