Side 77 - Eden, promised ere He died To the felon at His side, Lord ! our suppliant knees we bow, Son of God! 'tis Thou! 'tis Thou! Bound upon th...
Side 6 - How beautiful is night ! A dewy freshness fills the silent air, No mist obscures, nor cloud, nor speck, nor stain, Breaks the serene of heaven : In full-orbed glory yonder moon divine Rolls through the dark blue depths.
Side 15 - It consists essentially of two parts ; a calculating part, and a printing part, both of which are necessary to the fulfilment of Mr. Babbage's views ; for the whole advantage would be lost if the computations made by the machine were copied by human hands and transferred to types by the common process. The greater part of the calculating machinery is already constructed, and exhibits workmanship of such extraordinary skill and beauty, that nothing approaching to it has been witnessed.
Side 77 - tis Thou ! 'tis Thou ! Bound upon the accursed tree, Sad and dying, who is He ? By the last and bitter cry, The ghost given up in agony ; By the lifeless body laid In the chamber of the dead ; By the mourners come to weep Where the bones of Jesus sleep ; Crucified ! we know Thee now, Son of Man ! 'tis Thou ! 'tis Thou ! Bound upon the accursed tree, Dread and awful, who is He ? By the prayer for them that slew, " Lord, they know not what they do...
Side 15 - Great as the power of mechanism is known to be, yet we venture to say, that many of the most intelligent of our readers will scarcely admit it to be possible, that astronomical and navigation tables can be accurately computed by machinery ; that the machine can itself correct the errors which it may commit ; and that the results, when absolutely free from orror, can be printed off without the aid of human hands, or the operation of human intelligence. "All this, however," says Sir David Brewster,...
Side 12 - HE that loves a rosy cheek, Or a coral lip admires, Or from starlike eyes doth seek Fuel to maintain his fires ; As old Time makes these decay, So his flames must waste away. But a smooth and steadfast mind, Gentle thoughts and calm desires, Hearts with equal love combined, Kindle never-dying fires. Where these are not, I despise Lovely cheeks, or lips, or eyes...
Side 77 - tis Thou! Bound upon th' accursed tree, Dread and awful, who is He? By the prayer for them that slew, " Lord! they know not what they do!" By the spoil'd and empty grave, .By the souls He died to save, By the conquest He hath won, By the saints before His throne, By the rainbow round His brow, Son of God ! 'tis Thou ! 'tis Thou ! HYMN FOR THE SECOND SUNDAY IN ADVENT.
Side 11 - Observe the statutes of your heavenly King! And from his law, make all your laws to spring; Since his Lieutenant here, ye should...
Side 76 - I praised the sea, whose ample field Shone glorious as a silver shield ; And earth and ocean seem'd to say, " Our beauties are but for a day...
Side 16 - Besides logarithmic tables, Mr. Babbage's machine will calculate tables of the powers and products of numbers, and all astronomical tables for determining the positions of the sun, moon, and planets ; and the same mechanical principles have enabled him to integrate innumerable equations of finite differences, that is, when the equation of differences is given, he can, by setting an engine, produce at the end of a given time any distant term which may be required, or any succession of terms commencing...
