Page 239 - Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind ; neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

Page 288 - Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high-minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy ; that they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate, laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
Page 65 - Stand then in his great might, With all his strength endued; And take, to arm you for the fight, The panoply of God.

Page 123 - Though I walk through the gloomy vale Where death and all its terrors are, My heart and hope shall never fail, For God my shepherd's with me there. 5 Amidst the darkness and the deeps, Thou art my comfort, thou my stay; Thy staff supports my feeble steps, Thy rod directs my doubtful way.
Page 94 - Enable us ever to realize that there is one body and one spirit, even as we are called in one hope of our calling ; one Lord, one faith, one baptism ; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all...
Page 70 - Pardon for infinite offence ! and pardon Through means that speak its value infinite ! A pardon bought with blood ! with blood divine ! With blood divine of him I made my foe ! Persisted to provoke ! though woo'd, and aw'd, Blest, and chastis'd, a flagrant rebel still!
Page 205 - Rivers to the ocean run, Nor stay in all their course ; Fire, ascending, seeks the sun ; Both speed them to their source : So a soul, that's born of God, Pants to view His glorious face, Upward tends to His abode, To rest in His embrace.
